Why People are Scared of Death? A Case Study of Nepal

Author(s): Udaya Rana Magar


Every living being is born; they grow and develop, and one day they die. Death is simply the end of a living being’s life. It is a universal phenomenon; every living being on the planet should die one day. Every living being, however, is terrified of death. The level of human fear varies according to social-economic consciousness and mental consciousness. Death is an unavoidable part of life. Everyone considered death and developed various attitudes toward it. Typically, all fears are that people will cease to exist and lose themselves and the world. In the context of Nepal, this study has used individual characteristics, socio-economic conditions, and death fear as independent and dependent variables.

This study has used the primary data collected from a survey to achieve those objectives. Data related to the research has been collected from different online sources by using the Survey monkey software. This research is a review article, a descriptive study using previous research and defining them with their different areas. Based on the result, we found that death is a susceptible phenomenon; regardless of age, gender, education, health, and economic situation, they fear death. However, people aged, educated people & with higher economic conditions have more fear than others. As a result, everyone should have left greed, infatuation, and indulgence in their life.

Moreover, they should learn techniques to overcome fear, such as ‘relaxation' exercises. Relaxation techniques are one of the steps that must be taken to overcome the fear of death. Furthermore, if everyone understands that death is a reality for the people in our circle, people's lives will become more pleasant and peaceful.
