THE proprietor of an Indian restaurant next-door to a proposed funeral parlour is concerned the development will turn diners off their pappadums and vindaloo.


We see a lot of stories like this revealing how disconnected death is from life. It’s why the bereaved feel so disconnected from the living. If there is one truly superfluous ingredient of grief it has to be social embarrassment.

As to the good Mr Kumar (story above), I cannot resist the observation that a connecting corridor between his restaurant and the undertaker’s might actually serve everyone’s best interests. A cheap joke, I agree with you, but none the less giggly for that.
