Ever heard of somebody wishing a 'bright future' for a person who is dead? In an absurd incident in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao district, a village head issued a death certificate with a bizarre wish for an elderly man who passed away last month.
The incident happened in the Sirwariya village in Asoha block where an elderly person Laxmi Shankar after battling a prolonged illness on January 22.
His son visited the village head Babulal and requested him to issue a death certificate that he needed for a few financial transactions.
Babulal not only issued the death certificate but also 'wished' 'a bright future for the deceased' on the document.
The village head wrote in the death certificate -- "Main inke ujjwal bhavishya ki kaamna karta hoon (I wish him a bright future)."
The letter soon went viral for its absurdity, following which the village head apologized and issued a fresh certificate.
