MY OBITUARY


[ Futuristic post]

After my self-criticism, heres the next level : My obituary. The inspiration for the idea was a scene from the movie 'Serendipity'. And trust me, writing it aint that hard at all.

So, here goes:

--

As I would like it to appear in newspaper columns.....

Disgruntled Genius (DG) died yesterday of natural causes after the stupidity and fakeness prevalent in the world (growing by the minute) took its toll on him.

DG, as we know, had a pretty awesome blog - WTF is going on? - which was his crusade against all the irritations in the world. He had hoped that the blog's theme of political incorrectness regarding stupidity around and ranting against it will help in keeping his mind from going bonkers. But, it proved otherwise. The fatal blow finally came yesterday when Rakhi Sawant won the nobel for her efforts towards bringing peace to the world through her show 'Rakhi ka Insaaf'. DG, as always, decided to "analyze" this through an awesome blogpost - 'How Mahajan-Man saves Nobel'. But before he could even start, his mind and heart stopped working, almost at the same time. In this way, we can say that he martyred himself in the line of duty.


Talking about his mind and heart, this was the only time when they were in sync otherwise they were always at a conflict. While DG was a true romantic at heart, his mind was all practical and steady. Or rather, emotionless. As he himself once famously said, " The world is always so adamant on forcing shit up your ass, you cant help but becoming indifferent!". He was an optimistic person although in his last few days, he had become quite cynical which wasnt without reasons as he believed the world is truly going to the dogs.

DG was a good friend.He loved traveling and considered his backpack a sacred thing. He disliked religions and all those preachy TV Gurus. He never quite understood why people need some guru to tell them how to live? He had limited wishes which included noble causes like SRK announcing his retirement, Sachin lifting the World Cup trophy and ofcourse, a ban on idiocy , that is MTV.

DG wasnot a perfect person neither he desired to become one. He loved his life and always lived it with full-on attitude despite it being a bitch. He believed in love despite its tendency of hurting always and he loved himself - despite him being one big confused screw-up.

DG maynot be missed at all but his legacy will never die - the legacy which gave a new superhero to the world and brought respect to the term 'lazy ass'.

Love you DG. You truly lived by what you said - "Wont die before death. FTW!".

Although i didnt like the idea of a 'self-obituary', but the write-up was simply brilliant! You are truly mad, u know that ? :)

chatterbox unplugged said...

there are things nothering the world than those tv shows.......guess u watch them more than the average indian :P ......move over silly tv serials...broaden ur horizons :).....

DISGRUNTLED GENIUS said...

@Rashi .. Thnx :)

@PS.. The day i become sane, real obituary wl cm out :P

@Chatterbox.. Horizons are already broadened .. my blog "destroys" every one of them :) . Its jst tht TV occupies the most of idiocy space.

*conditions apply said...

You should host your own show on MTv :P. Wonder if you have heard of Bill Hicks? He was huge in the 'rant against idiocy' movement in the U.S.A. in the early 90s but he succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 94 and look how stupid they ended up becoming! Hope India doesn't surrender it's IQ to 'apparent,purely urban' development.

nOt anyone you know said...

an obituary early in the morning.
you are too disgruntled about things it seems.

i did that too in the recent past, though the inspiration and the theme were totally different.

Ria said...

What an idea to come up with such an obituary....this was so original, one of a kind obituary. :P

Sh@s said...

May his soul rest in peace and rise in darkness with the vampires :P

DISGRUNTLED GENIUS said...

@Conditions apply.. Hicks was a genius. He alongwith others like George carlin took comedy to new heights. Nowadays, Maddox is simply brilliant.

@Mangoman, Ria , Missterious .. Thanx :)

@ Sh@s ... Amen! The new 'Dark Lord' .. one who shall not be named :)

DISGRUNTLED GENIUS said...

@Not anyone... Not much disgruntled now. More indifferent. Stupidity has smwhat ceased to really bother me.

Would love to read what you wrote .. if you wanna share.

Cheers.

Deepika Vasudeva said...

this one makes me wish to be able to read my obituary after i die,... though its kinds hard. ain't it?

nevertheless.. good ranting! :P

nOt anyone you know said...

Lol. i went thru that phase last year. stupidity got to me too much. now there are stupid people, who call me stupid, and i don't even bother to react, but am still not indifferent. i wish i learnt that.

this was my obituary. http://bliss-n-pathos.blogspot.com/2010/09/misadventures-serve-up-to-humor-you.html

DISGRUNTLED GENIUS said...

@Zephyr .. Thanks. 'Toning down' is in progress.. Here late DG's 'philosophy' had to be 'printed' as it was :)

@Deepika.. May sound depressing but well, death is inevitable. So, jst havin lil fun wit it :P . And, its nt hard. Try writin yours :) ..

@Not any1... Indifference is a lesson we never intend to learn.. Its always 'forced' by the world.
