The concept of death as a sentient entity is found in nearly every society.
In Western culture, death is often called the "Grim Reaper" and is depicted
as a hooded, skeletal figure that carries a scythe and either guides the
deceased to the next world or actually causes the victim's death—leading to
tales that he can be bribed or outwitted. In the Hindu scriptures, the lord
of death, Yama, rides a black buffalo and carries a lasso. In Greek
mythology, death is Thanatos, the twin brother of Hypnos .

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
