A cynical take on life and afterlife by a law student…
By Naman Gupta- Third Year, B.A./B.Sc.L.L.B. (Hons.), WBNUJS
Some call it the eternal sleep
While others call it men’s repose
But what death actually is?
Is it a bed of rose?
Let me provide you with the answer
It all depends on a person’s view
Some can give a definite reply
Others don’t have a clue
For some, death is a sanguinary monster
Others may extenuate it in jest
But the fact remains
It is everyone’s final place of rest
Where does one go
To hell or heaven?
Is it a dangerous journey
Or a safe haven ?
Does God grant amnesty
Or is he a savage master?
There are several burning questions with actually no answer
Does God’s system believe in ex-gratia and ex-parte?
Why isn’t there any transparency?
Isn’t God utopian
Doesn’t he believe in democracy?
There seems to be a fat chance of getting answers to these questions
Only what needs to be done is that God take the stand and give us his version
If that is asking for too much
Then the dead take the onus upon themselves to expose the system
Anyway, whatever I may have against the system
It seems to be the established norm
and I doubt if there is going to be any reform
Coming back to practicality, I must say everyone’s life is on a lease
And since the concerned authorities may have something against me for writing this stuff,
Pray for my soul to rest in peace
