1. All quota supporting politicians (like Arjun singh)
2. All corrupt politicians, especially those who create unnecessarily expensive projects to make money on commission.
3. All non-politicians who think that corruption is inescapable so lets keep bribing or keep asking for it.
4. All those train TTE's who expect money to transfer legitimate berths to wait listed people at night.
5. All those passengers who go around offering high denomination notes to TTE's for illegitimately transferring train berths to them at night.
6. All autowallas who try to suck the blood out of commuters
7. All mechanics, electricians, plumbers etc type of skilled workers who take advantage of people's lack of understanding of the work and overcharge.

Why can't all of us just start doing things the right way, the fair way, without looking for an undeserved advantage?! I feel alone when I am the only one not breaking the traffic light on a Noida signal while half the world is rushing past me. I try to hit into vehicles who cross my way while their signal is red and mine is green! I fear someday I'll kill myself. And then my obituary may read -

"Here lies the man who could never show to the world that a non-corrupt system will be so beautiful to live in."

(i converted your "short and sweet" into "long and sour" :) )

I'm afraid I wont be able to read anyone's obituary w.o choking tears. There wont be any pleasure involved in it either Sol.

btw my blog is my obituary...and it shall be read with pleasure cos it includes my life stories and I wont be there to cry when it becomes an obituary. :)

Gayatri said...

None, actually! I'd probably be indifferent to a few, but never pleasure

ceedy said...

Mine - I am a perfectionist even there - will make sure to type it in read it with pleasure and give it to someone to publish it....

I'd like to read about the good someone did with their time here... no one in particular since death is sucky mcducky...

But, assuming it was someone random in the obits who lived a wonderful, long life and did lots of good, I think it would be cool to read and celebrate that person.

@ Sutta,

Why not?

Solitaire said...

@ Pavi,

Really? Cannot think of anyone??

Solitaire said...

@ Crimson,

Wow!! You are quite bitter. I don't blame you. The state in India is quite pitiful. You sound a lot like the hero in a Hindi movie that is all set to set things right. Unfortunately, we citizens cannot be as successful as those damn heroes.

Solitaire said...

@ Alok,

Not even Angelina Jolie's husband?

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

Awww..I understand what you are saying. But you cannot think of a funny or witty answer either?

Solitaire said...

@ Veens,

Why Veens? What has he done to you?

Solitaire said...

@ Nirmal,

Why not?

Solitaire said...

@ Neeku,

Hmmmmm....everyone's taking this question so seriously!

Solitaire said...

@ Iceman,

How come? Would it be a false one or would you be a ghost?

Solitaire said...

@ ghost particle,

OMG!! If they get assassinated, they might come looking for you for having made that statement!! Now what do you have against them?

Solitaire said...

@ Gayatri,

Interesting.

Solitaire said...

@ Ceedy,

Sounds like a good plan!!

Solitaire said...

@ Carolinagal,

Second person to say that!

Solitaire said...

@ Rayshma,

Wow. How I wish I could be like you.

Solitaire said...

@ Am in trance,

How and why?

Solitaire said...

@ Catscratch,

Nice way of looking at it!

Solitaire said...

@ Elusive,

Come on...really!?

:: Clouds :: said...

I second Crimson Feet!! yes i definitely do.

Keshi said...

** But you cannot think of a funny or witty answer either?

lol I got so drama-ish with my first ans, sorry. Ok here is a funny one:


I'd read the obituary of any Suicide Terrorist with GREAT pleasure. This is what I'd say:

He was a F#cker, someone who F#cked up innocent lives and died F#cking himself. He shall remain a beautiful F#cker in his F#cked up memory. F#ck in peace!



Sol pardon me for my language...I cudnt help it. :)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Waiting for the day,when i could turn out as a Ghost who walks and have a good laugh reading thru the obituary..laugh because who write a good one on me, would be writing a yarn and because I know what I am in my real life,,,it would be a perfect reel

Solitaire said...

@ G man,

Be my guest! Have you made a list already?

Solitaire said...

@ alisha,

Sorry!! Calm Frenzies is bandh for now. Will open it up for everyone when I return to blogosphere.

About the fish, I am wondering if there is any magazine where people get obituaries of their pets printed?

Solitaire said...

@ Nitin,
