A Story by zainul
"

Written to describe a photograph of a grave in a graveyard published in Flickr.

"
This is a grave at the Azimpur graveyard.Thousands of people throng the graveyard to pray and show love to their deceased relatives and friends specially on the major festivals.Some of them place flowers, flower wreaths,bouquets and flower petals and foliage on the grave site of their beloved persons.
They also place incense and agar sticks.In the night candles are lit by some too.They pray for the deceased peoples. Some carry religious books to recite.Some pious peoples are around to recite and leading prayers. The atmosphere of the graveyard becomes very sacred and solemn during this time.The graveyard may be compared with a managed garden where lots of flower and ornamental plants are planted by the relatives of the departed peoples.Besides many forms of insects particularly wonderful butterflies,bees and bugs are seen in plenty there.Birds also visit the place to add to the beauty.
I love to visit the graveyard because I know that it is my last home.The same graveyard is the last home of my grand parents,my parents and many near and dear ones.I feel a great sense of reunion with my favorite ones during my stay in the graveyard.

Thats a lovely, more positive way of viewing a graveyard. Most times, when i think of graveyards, I picture solemn, lonely fields of stones protruding from the earth. Its very empty and cold. But this is very alive and peaceful. Its a beautiful way to honor the lives of loved ones we've lost.

Death has fascinated me since I stared scribbling verses and poems (unpublished). And graveyards are as sacred as temples. :)

Great setting, thoughtful. An interesting way to look at the "final resting place" as visiting ones last home. You mention others of your family there, and how you like visiting, I think you should add more to this write, bring out the relationships then and now as you reminisce amongst them. Clear writing, nice work.

Although i kind of like the idea of being planted in a garden i suppose i would rather my ashes be cast in Lost creek where I spent my days as a boy
