Mummy's Recipe

Believe it or not, I found the following entry while turning the pages of an old diary that I used as a rough notebook. It's written in my handwriting. I remember watching a programme on Discovery Channel about this, but I really don't remember writing it down.

Recipe for making a mummy (Egyptian Style)
  1. Wash well
  2. Remove organs
  3. Pat dry
  4. Cover with baking soda and salt
  5. Change mixture thrice a week
  6. Wrap in plastic packs (stinks!)
  7. When mummy dries up, wrap in bandages and put in coffin.

I can't say what made me write down this macabre procedure. Or was it written by my Mr. Hyde-like alter ego about whom I don't know? In any case, my enemies better beware, or they may find themselves gift-wrapped inside a mile of bandage.


  1. Interesting!!
    Oye Bangalore se jate jete kisi ko mummy bana ke hi jayega kya??? No Pun Intended!!

  2. @aurindam: Ahem, as far as I know, I live in Hyderabad. You can try it in Bangalore.

  3. HNY Bro.

    Guess we all have secret recipies for making mummies tucked away somewhere in our past. But this one takes the cake.

  4. @prometheus unbound: Thanks! I'm back in Kolkata... so I'm off the Net for a few days.

  5. Noydate je lokta atogulo sisu hatya korlo, se bodh hoy eta jane.

  6. @pisimoni: Kintu se to mummy banayni...?
