The news of my death has shown me new realities of life. The very people who pretended to be my own and upon whom I showered my love and wealth, are ready and waiting to grab my worldy possessions like a horde of vultures hovering over the mortal remains of a man. . I used to feel that they loved me for myself as one human being should love another. But I was sadly mistaken. They cared not for me but for my millions. Even taht chit of a girl whom I brought up was my daughter has accused me of the wilest possible crime only to gain for herself a share in my material wealth. . I am being choked to death as the truth about humans dawns upon me. I would die if I were to live amongst them another day. And I do not want to live and search for humanity and that is why I am leaving every thing and every ibe whom, thought my own behind. . Though I have lost my faith in human beings. I still believe in the inherent goodness of His creations. And I Shall search for this goodness till I find it. Whether I shall find it or not - only Annadata knows.
