Death is depicted so easily in movies and in books. You hear the sound of a gun-shot, or a hit by a rod on the back of the victim’s head; and the immediate next moment, you see him lying cold. And dead.
Is it really so easy to portray death? Can death actually be imitated? I think not. It’s a much deeper concept.

All kinds of opinions to this are invited. Let me know what my fellow bloggers think about this. πŸ™‚

  1. Death shouldn’t be easy to imitate. Who wants to believe life is surrounded so easily?! Death should be drawn out of the character. Life clings to every environment. Going quietly into the night doesn’t seen appropriate.

  2. If you actually ever experienced death it will haunt you for the rest of your life
    I have seen it in my time
    And I can tell you that it’s nothing that you want to experience first hand
    I could go on but I will spare you

    1. I’m not trying to degrade, humiliate or even glorify death, here. I’m only saying that it is very much under-rated while in movies/ books. The depiction is so swift that we start to really consider that death is an easy job.
      I hope that didn’t contradict your way of thinking.
      Thanks for sharing your views. πŸ™‚


    1. True. The living aren’t aware of what it is to actually die. But then, I feel the movies/ books portray it in a very swift way, which makes us doubt if it is really so simple to practice death?!
      I hope you understand what I’m trying to convey here.. πŸ™‚
      Thanks for stopping by and reading it.
      Keep blogging! πŸ˜€

  3. I’m so glad you posted this. Nobody talks about death. It’s as if they don’t even want to say the word “death”. It will happen to all of us, why is everyone so afraid to talk about it?

  4. Only the dying knows what dying feels like. And if he dies, he never wakes up to tell the living how dying felt like. So how is the living supposed to know how it is to die ?

    In my profession I’ve seen more people die than movies or books could ever tell. That moment when you look into the eyes of the dying right before they’re about to die, sends in you a feeling of pity at the helplessness of medical science, and more than pity, it sends in you a deep fear for you know, it will be you someday.

    I personally think (I’m not sure though), that may be, dying is just an inevitable process in the sequence of events, governed by something extremely powerful and that these events might even continue after death. I mean, I believe that as humans, it is WE and only WE who control everything that’s happening in our lives…good or bad. It’s our subconscious who orders the system to create those situations that lead to what we want to happen with us…again, good or bad. So, if death comes, I believe, that too is only when our subconscious orders the system to bring death upon us.

    Our subconscious knows when our part in the story of the universe is over, though our conscious mind may keep denying it. A conscious mind might never want to die, but the subconscious is what we really are. I think, it’s only after death that we are really at peace.

    Or maybe not. For the journey might just carry on. From this world to perhaps another. From this system to another. From this body to another. But then wait, whats the reason behind all this happening? Do we not have the right to know why we’re in this ? Or is it us who first created this universe and then put ourselves in it? What’s the truth?

    I’m confused.

    1. Wow! First of all, I really appreciate it a lot that you’ve put so much of thought to this topic!! In today’s fast.-paced world, I rarely find people who take the time to think deeply about such things! Thank you for sharing your views.

      “Only the dying knows what dying feels like. And if he dies, he never wakes up to tell the living how dying felt like.”
      I completely agree to this sentence of yours. Thought provoking indeed. πŸ™‚

    1. I agree with your comment that death is different for every one. It indeed is.
      Maybe, as you said, ‘living is hard.’ But for all you know, dying might be way harder than living. There may come an time when you’d long for the ‘living’ instead of the soul-less body. Try being more grateful for what you have & cherish the life! Dying cannot always be the easy resort. πŸ™‚


    1. Whoa! I truly appreciate the words used by you to explain death! Awesome! Liked it a lot. I’ve never seen death from this perspective. Thanks a lot for your comment. πŸ™‚

      1. Thank you for opening the conversation, Suri. It’s a cogent topic that every world religion or existential discussion sets out to answer. The question of origin, life, and death–the before, the hereafter, and our relation to both.

  5. Death in many TV shows and movies often exists almost as an abstract idea divorced from the reality of such things. When you watch a James Bond movie and the second henchman from the left falls to an early death in the meat grinder, your first thoughts are not for his wife and children.

    I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing — bad probably, if it makes death seem of less consequence — but I think this is probably the psychology of it.

      1. You’re welcome! It was a thought-provoking question so I thought I would chip in an opinion. Some of the other comments on the thread were interesting too. I’m not sure quite what to make of the “everything comes out” one, though. It’s certainly not a side of the subject much highlighted in James Bond movies, thank goodness.

  6. A life is complete with a life. Death is just a trance. If we owned a life we earned a death also. Through all the smiles all the woes we crave for a chance to life not knowing death do not apart us. Life is beautiful so is death. It just don’t come with a reminder but sometimes we give it a snooze button.
