Arbitary Obsessionist's Blog : Ambition is redundant. In life, mission is everything.

Bastard whose ‘surname’ I don’t know. First one can be any other abuse you plan hurling at him

with 12 comments

One of my colleagues is from the state of Bihar (This post is not about him). He just came back from his home there, and was narrating an incident to me. The incident was an example of a very common activity that happens there, during the funeral procession.

Read it and you will understand the aptness of the title of this post.

When a person dies there, a funeral procession is carried out. A lot of people gather and take the body for cremation. Now this procession travels through roads of the villages which have got some shops. Some of these shops belong to the typical Munims and Zamindaars. What these people do is that they send there people to these processions to gather all the information about the deceased person like his financial status, ownerships of land, cows and his problems and other pity details..

[Now comes the terrible part]
Now after a few days, these people send their men to the family of the deceased and tell them that the person who has just died had taken money from them (!) (Although he never had!!), which needs to be returned, and that too with unimaginable rates of interest.  And to make themselves sound authentic, they have ready reference of all the information that they had collected in funeral procession. The family members, being uneducated and ill-informed, have no choice but to believe these bastards. And they call this process as “Murde is paise banana” (Making money from the dead).

I have nothing else to say.
