Write your own epitaph!

ep·i·taph Pronunciation Key (p-tf)
n.
An inscription on a tombstone in memory of the one buried there.
A brief literary piece commemorating a deceased person.


Youth is cruel. Fools you into illusions of immortality. Then one day, you cant see like you used to, your hair turns grey (Hi BIGGIE) and its all downhill from there.

Like as you would, your thoughts turn to 'mere baad'. Increase your Life Insurance and investments. Write a will.

So after you what do you want written on your tombstone?

Serious one guys! NO DERAILING! Look inside and liberate the fear of thinking about this!!

I had said there wouldn't be one for me, but Videsee bhaya said that I could think of one for a virtual tombstone. Same goes for you, Kranti.

Arrow Epitaph from my wife for me would read

Sacred to the memory of
my husband SlyBoots
who died October 23 , 2178.

His youngest comely widow, aged 23, has
many qualifications of a good wife, and
yearns to be comforted.

Epitaphs of some echarchans would read

Vakil SahaabHere lies an honest lawyer,
And that is Strange

Big-G - The Anonymous I was somebody.
Who, is no business of yours.

NetajiHere lies the body of our Netaji
Done to death by a banana
It wasn't the fruit that laid her low
But the skin of the thing that made her go.

videshi mian yaar yeh to bahut chakkar mein daal diya apne.never actually thought about it.
Being a good modern liberal muslim I'll jot down my epitaph,which will be
Zindagi hai zindadili ka naam,
Murda dil bhi kya khaak jiya kartein hein.

Shanno ke woh,Sheikhoo,Pappu aur gudia ke pyare abbu.

Yeh duniya to bemani hai ,
Jannat mein phir aashiyana banayenge hum log.


Waise jub hum hazrat Muhammad PBUH kee kabr dekhne gaye to wahan pe kuch na tha,kehtein hein islam mein yeh sab karna mana hai.
1.)raising one's grave above ground level.
2.)Making it pukka with stone or brick.
3.)Leaving any mark or epitaph.

In fact all sahabas and other companions of prophet now rest at Baki near Madina I think-which is just a ground.It is said the same graveyard shall be used my lakhs and on the day of judgement all will be brought back to life epitaph or no epitaph.
har cheez mein funda hai bhai log.

some more epitaphs for Netaji

Here lies an Atheist
All dressed up
And no place to go.

Here lies a poor woman who was always tired;
She lived ina house where help was not hired.
Her last words on earth were: "Dear friends, I am going
Where washing ain't done, nor sweeping, no sewing:
But everything there is exact to my wishes;
For where they don't eat there's no washing of dishes...
Don't mourn for me now; don't mourn for me never -
I'm going to do nothing for evere and ever.
