Have you ever considered which song you would want to be played at your funeral?
When my cousin Manoj came down to India for a visit in 1999, we both drove in a car to Palghat to attend his cousin’s (but not mine) wedding. All the way back and forth he played this song, atleast 50 times on the car stereo. And he turned to me and said that if he died before me, I was to play this song at his funeral.
Now, we come from a hindu family (read that hypocrites for whom rituals mean more than the actual person’s feelings & wishes) so I told him that if I did that, I would be banned from society and hounded like a paraiah by the rest of our members of our large extended family. But he insisted and so I gave in and promised him.
I hope I die before you, Manoj!
The song is All I Want Is Everything by Def Leppard, which is about a dying man’s lament.
I don’t trust people who are overly religious. And who claim to have the ear of god. I can understand going to a place of worship, following certain traditions and stuff. But letting some book decided every course of action for you? What the fuck is that?
Once again, anyone who is overtly religious is hiding something. Like the true nature. Hindu, Christian, Islam. Every person I know who is overtly religious in these faiths are either frauds, fakes or who use religion as a tool to make a profit. Or who are actually devious, cunning & devilish. Who are pure evil (not the hollywood or comic variety) and I mean who manipulate things to their benefits.
revolutionary road movie Unfortunately, these are also people who are successful in life. It seems their fucking “gods” support them and bless them with riches. Ha ha ha!! Yeah rite! No, it just seems that way. Today I saw the return visit of one such mother fucker. Religious through and through. Lives by the bible. Almost preaches it. Sucks as a human being. Manipulative, devious, cunning sonofabitch if I ever met one. You seen movies in which there’s a villainous priest who is evil through & through and does the devil’s work instead? Well that’s him. Only he looks like Mr. Bean!
