Only those should cry, when I am dead, who have lived life as I have. Who have experienced poetry, music and have tasted the wine of life as I have. And bury me where all my friends are there enjoying below the mud.

Don’t do the rituals at my dead body as you do for all the normal men. Don’t cry and feel sad when I am gone. Instead you should rejoice, dance and sing as we did in our life. All my close ones should drink more and feel blessed to be still here as your friend is gone.
