Dutta, B. A. (n.d.). The Life of a Dying Mind. Retrieved from

After reading the novel “The Death of Ivan Ilyich” (Leo Tolstoy – 1886), my mind was flooded with thoughts and then came the idea for this blog post. Unfortunately, I have never had a near-death experience. Fortunately, I also do not have the experience of death. Therefore, for me, what can be more difficult to grasp than “Death”?, thought I and wrote this post.

News of a certain death in near future is always a breaking news for any human mind. Ironically, the human mind that can contemplate the vastness of the universe and peek into the sub-atomic world has failed to prepare itself for the news of imminent self-destruction.

Both types of death have the same destination but slow death chooses a more poetic journey to the end — a longer route on a slower train. Which type of Death do you wish for?
