Dear Death,

September 23, 2018

Dear Death,

I am so glad that I can talk to you now. How lucky you are. I have one question. What happens to us after I die? Do you really take my soul away or take us from the people who need us?

When will you come dear? Please don’t knock the door. Come silently & give me a packet of Little Heart OR just give me a ₹10 MilkyBar chocolate. And say “You have to leave right now”

I promise you ‘I don’t make any excuse and even take time.

My dear death please don’t give me a pain because There are too much pain in my life paths that I suffered.

Death is my final destination
Life is my journey
Happiness & Sadness is my life partner.
I knowing everything but why I afraid from death.
There are too much sad moments in my life’s paths
It is also true that happiness is only in the my mother’s food.

I know my lovely death, You are the unspoken truth that everybody knows but still don’t accept.


I am Ashish Kumar. I am known as Shanky. I was born and brought up in Ramgarh, Jharkhand. I have studied Electronics and Communication Engineering. I have written 10 books. I have come to know so much of my life that life makes me cry as much as death. Have you heard that this world laughs when no one has anything, if someone has everything, this world is longing for what I have, this world. Whatever I am, I belonged to my beloved Mahadev. What should I say about myself? Gradually you will know everything.

      1. I just watched and held my son for 5 years through Leukemia and the suffering was excrutiating..he didnt want to leave us and we were desperate not to lose heart will never be the same as he flew away…I feel your gratitude for life and emotions and I pray love will continue to be your greatest experience!

  1. I loved this, although I do not fear death. I do not wish to leave my sons and daughters, whom I love dearly, but I’ve been ready for a long, long time. Below is one of the first poem I ever wrote that touches on this subject.

    My day is done, all strife arrest,
    A thankful time of still content.
    No task undone, no call advent,
    To halt or stay my welcome guest.
    My book’s aside, its mark in place,
    Come gently sleep, do not relent
    Or tarry long your kind embrace,
    With but one touch all cares erase,
    One whisper, ever more to rest.

  3. Very beautiful letter shanky😘
    Mere ko atal ji ki poem yad aa gai.
    जूझने का मेरा इरादा न था,
    मोड़ पर मिलेंगे इसका वादा न था,
    रास्ता रोक कर वह खड़ी हो गई,
    यूं लगा जिंदगी से बड़ी हो गई।
    मौत की उमर क्या है? दो पल भी नहीं,
    जिंदगी सिलसिला, आज कल की नहीं।
    मैं जी भर जिया, मैं मन से मरूं,
    लौटकर आऊंगा, कूच से क्यों डरूं?
    तू दबे पांव, चोरी-छिपे से न आ,
    सामने वार कर फिर मुझे आजमा।
    मौत से बेखबर, जिंदगी का सफ़र,
    शाम हर सुरमई, रात बंसी का स्वर।
    मौत से ठन गई……..

  4. Ohhh ShankySalty… this is so sad, ‘tho glad you’re not afraid 😦
    For me, as a born again Christian, death is only the beginning!!!
    The Bible teaches that Jesus conquered death at The Cross…
    So now, anyone who receives God’s Son (the Lord Jesus Christ)
    as their personal Saviour will be saved and conquer death to live
    with Him in Heaven for all eternity 🙂 My prayerful hope is that you
    will surrender your heart/soul to Jesus today! 🙂 ❤ Jackie@KWH
