About the Book

The word death comes from the Proto-Indo-European stern dheu-meaning the “Process, act, condition of dying.” Other socially accepted term for death are – expired, passed away, passed on or deceased. Deprived of life, the dead person is then referred as a corpse, a cadaver or a dead body. Death is the cessation of all biological function that sustains a living organism. Phenomena which bring about death include biological aging (Senescence), predation, starvation, disease, suicide, murder and accidents or trauma resulting in terminal injury.
