How to Die

Year of Publication: 1997

ISBN: 978-2707-98-8

Some people are allergic to the word "death." For them, it is better to leave death alone and avoid discussing it. They seem to imply that death is so peaceful, and friendly that it will never disturb anybody, unless it is woken up from its innocent slumber.

If you belong to this school of thought, then, this book is not for you. In it, we are going to discuss hairraising topics on death. Better drop it, before you begin to tremble. Be warned!

There are also those who are of the strong opinion that, though death is an enemy, which we all certainly would wish to avoid, it has bluntly resisted all human avoidance. It is constantly parading itself around us and persistently knocking at our doors.

This school of thought firmly believes that even if you sacrificed to death twenty-four hours, in the day, and spent as much time incensing its altar, it would still strike you, when you least expected it. It is blind to all gifts, deaf to all pleas and completely insensitive to human feelings. They agree that it is better to discuss it and get ready for it, while one is still alive and able. When it strikes, it will be too late.

If you belong to this second group, then, this book is for you. In it, we are going to handle those topics, on death, which have very often crossed your mind but which, for one reason or another, you have never got the time to articulate. You will find, as you read on, that our thoughts will often meet and flow together and you will begin to wonder if you are not the person writing the book yourself.

In our discussion, we shall be doing many unconventional things. For example, we shall be using the neutral gender "it" for death instead of the conventional, feminine gender, "she". Does that surprise you? Is death itself not unconventional? We are going to use its own method in treating it.

Furthermore, expect no sequence in the chapters. The one you think should come first may be the last. This is also in keeping with death's method. It does not observe any chronological sequence. It strikes both the young and the old, at will. Death is a shocker and a surpriser. Expect as much in this book, as it diligently takes you on a thrilling lesson on how to die.
