My obituary

I was at a Race and Religion conference at work today which was quite interesting. In one of the workshops, we were asked to try and write our own obituaries. Unfortunately, a) we didn't get enough time to do so and b) we never actually found out why. But the whole thing got me thinking, and in the ultimate egotistical act, here is my own obituary, as written by me.

Raj was a dutiful son, a loving brother and a trusted and trusting friend. He always tried to do the right thing, with some measure of success. He cared an awful lot about his family, his friends and his world. He was fascinated by the world around him and the universe in which it was situated. This fascination led him towards the realms of science in which he found joy as a layman. For his entire life, he held the belief that people were basically good, without ever fully understanding why. He had a great sense of fun and a part of him never fully grew up. He will be remembered.
