Chennai: Ejji K Umamahesh, who died on Friday in Chennai, had written his obituary before his death. He gave the piece to his family members to put it up on the newspaper and that is going viral on the internet.

A picture of the obituary went viral on social media. Also, Ejji wrote one separately for Facebook that his family posted after his death.

Obituary with the title, “Self-written Obituary Announcement From Ejji K Umamahesh,” was published in the newspaper with a picture of him.

It read, “Lived on his own terms as a Religionless Citizen of the World on Village Earth. Congenital Sybarite, Recycled Teenager, Rat-Race Runner (Retd.), Whole time Househusband & Homemaker, Compulsive Party Host, Theater & Movie Actor, International Car Rally Driver & Organiser, Rationalist, Humanist, Atheist, Free Thinker”.

“Friends, enemies, and those-in-between”, he added, “Thanks for sharing my exciting life. My party is over, and I hope there is no hangover for those I leave behind. Time is running out for everyone. Live well, enjoy your life, and continue the party. As John Lennon said, ‘Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans.’ Cheers and bye, forever, and please Live. Don’t Exist. Ejji”.

The elderly man donated all his “usable organs and body parts for transplantation and the remaining body for anatomical demonstration and research purposes”.

Harsha Koda shared the newspaper screenshot of the obituary on Facebook, users mourned Ejji’s loss and shared their memories within him.

“I’ve been fortunate to have met him couple of times. Very interesting person to talk to”, said an user.

“Despite all that he has achieved, he was such an approachable guy…I did not meet him personally, yet he was always encouraging me with any queries I had…never doubt your passion, was what he said to me and I’ll always remember him by…You are an inspiration…always”, wrote another one.

Ejji had also written a separate obituary for Facebook, published on his account by his family, reads-

“I regret to inform you that my vintage vehicle that was being restored, in spite of the best mechanics in India with mastery over their craft, modern tools and expertise at their command, did all they could to revive it, but unfortunately did not succeed. The engine gasket blew, the engine housing cracked, the pistons seized, and the old jalopy is now ready to be scrapped”.

“Luckily a few parts that have survived destruction will be donated to other similar vintage vehicle owners who can put them to good use in their own machine. Must say that for the most inhospitable terrains around the world that I drove it for 72 years, guzzling ‘fuel’ of all sorts, adding additives that defy description and logic, surviving desert temperature highs, to colds that can freeze the balls of a brass monkey, it has served truly well. It surely will be remembered. Thank you”.
