death1 “DEATH”- this is the one thing that has been troubling me since a while. Well it doesn’t mean I’m afraid of death or terrified by the thought of it. It’s just that I don’t like the way it comes to some to us. Be it rich or poor, old or young, diseased or healthy-all are equal before death. At one moment of time you see a healthy person and the next moment he may die due to an accident. Life is so uncertain..

I agree that every person should die and it’s a must, but what’s the meaning of life when it ends so abruptly and meaninglessly? A couple of days ago I came to know that a boy, who is 6to7 years old died due to falling in a man hole. If we go through newspaper, every other day we find a child dying in an accident or a heart problem or some other reason. What has been their fault? Their lives ended without even knowing the true meaning of life. Don’t you think that god(leave alone the debate if he exists or not) was being unfair to them? What’s the point of being born when you die even before realizing the essence of life?

I agree that if given a chance to decide the time of death most of the people(if not all) will never want to die. But that’s not what I am asking for. A life should be a complete blend of all emotions and one must experience all of it before dying. And the most important of all he/she must know the value of life before dying. If I consider myself as an example I wouldn’t mind dying at one point of time when I’ve done bad in my exam or when my parents scold me. But I’m sure after a moment or two I would want to live and enjoy my life.

Had there been a fixed span of life time wouldn’t it be great? We would have enjoyed life to the fullest extent and People who love you would be prepared for the news of our death. Wouldn’t this be better than one dying all of a sudden and leaving them in shock and unbearable grief? I don’t mean that if we know the time of death the amount of grief will be less, but at least they’ll be prepared for your death and one can see all of their loved ones before dying.

Death obviously means putting a sad end to life. But what I want (which will never happen) is that people should not die at a young age or they should die by an accident or any illness. It would be great if all of us will die at a particular age and without any pain or grief. And at that point of time I think there will be a meaning to the life we live because we’ll know our life span and will want to enjoy it to the fullest extent.

    well i feel that death decides the quality of a man.
    some people face it with courage and some with fear.
