Default Life after Death

I had written about my friendís fatal accident in the highways last Sunday. Iam frustrated to see the happenings that follow his death.


1. Somewhere around Rs.6000/- was emptied from his wallet

2. His mobile phone along with battery was stolen & was kind enough to keep the sim car in the dashboard.

3. Music system was stolen and the speakers cut open to be removed.

Next day evening a night shift police constable claimed to have stood guard for the car last night and demanded ( not requested) for money. We did not told him about the missing items & we know exactly, what will he say" Lodge a complaint, we will trace it out"

Yet to get death certificate as we were thrown pillar to post from Police station to VO office to collectorate office. To get the postmortem report, MBBS completed duty doctor demanded Rs.500/- .

Today moving to VO office to get the death certificate and to Police station to get the inquest report. Not sure how long this is going to take.

The entire scene reminds me of Shankar's tamil film "INDIAN"

This is really sad and disturbing...and these things would be happening daily on our roads...the worst part is the police and doctors asking for bribe.

This is the result of over population, illiteracy and utter disregard for others....sad. Even in death there are people who want to make a quick, illegal buck.

Well, everyone answers to someone eventually.

When will honesty come in this world. Every one wants to become rich overnight. Sad to know about all this. May your friends soul rest in peace.

Surprise...I'm really sorry to hear about your friend.

This is a really sad state of affairs. But like Rtech said, we all pay for our sins. And these guys will...

Really sad to hear about that.But as Rtech rightly pointed out,its the illiteracy and over-population which has to be blamed.And moreover,the lay man has this 'who cares' attitude.They just want to make quick bucks.
Sorry to hear about your friend too.God bless his soul.

Sorry to hear that you all had to undergo such a situation. First of all, it is very sad to see that you loose your loved one, then again, these people make lives miserable.

You reminded me of how I was running behind all possible officers/clerks to collect my mom's death certificate, exactly a year back. I understand exactly how you might be feeling now.
