Death has been a threat to mankind and the greatest challenge to every Tom, Dick, and Harry. Many leave the planet at the prime of their life, and some willing to sacrifice billions in order to avert the peril of death. Many researchers with Nobel prizes are no more; great number of powerful world leaders are no more; many money magnets, billionaires, and philanthropist are no more. There is endless list of great men of honour who have lived and are no more. Hence the quest by the church, astrologists, societies and the scientists to divulge the mystery of death.
