No, nobody likes to talk about death. But people have to die, do they not? Even Devanand had to die!
A long time ago I wrote a piece ‘If you were to die tonight what would your family do?’- here is the link
My question to all readers is to take some time off and seriously think of death.
You just got married, or you just got engaged, or you just had a baby…now think “if you were to die tonight, what would your dependents do?
Are they prepared? financially and physically? It is not easy to think about death – but the uncertainty means so you must think. Who will pay the school fees, the EMI, the daily rations,…and please do remember it is not easy.
Will your wife work by choice or will she be forced to work? And be realistic -if she does not have a great qualification and has taken a couple of breaks – will she get a job? Who will pay the EMI for the plasma TV which she never wanted?
Where will be the birthday party of your 6 year old? Same hotel as last year or will the party be cancelled? If the roof is leaking and the paint is peeling off, will she afford to paint the house?
Will your brothers, and mother decide to throw her out of the house – then where does she go? NOMINATIONS are important too. If you have old policies with your mother as a nominee, please make sure your wife is now the nominee.
It is easy to live like you will not die. It is much worse to die like you never lived! – this is a take from Steve Jobs’s quotes.
