What gets me most is that many of the generations of builders must've known that they wouldn't finish it - maybe not even close - in their own
lifetimes. Yet they still persevere - real faith.
Yeah it hurt - started a chain of events: Rabies jabs > bad reaction with the anti-malaria pills > amoebic dysentery on a 30hr train journey with a
carriage full of soldiers > evading rip-off artists in the midnight labyrinth of Varinassi....
Watching a body burn on a pyre the following night put things into perspective. Amazing how the skin turns black and crispy - very ugly - the lungs
expand and explode, followed by the eyeballs. Then, quite surprisingly the black skin peels away all at once, revealing an ivory white corpse - for
several moments the ugly burnt corpse is beautifully angelic, before this in turn grows black.
Very hard country that makes our winging about New World Orders pale in comparison to the tough lives they have. I'd love to go back to India!
