Indians are garbage.
They usually pull the bodies out into the distance and it's considered a sign of luck and/or blessings when the body floats back. The fact that animals make meals off the dead is also supposedly a good thing. It's the circle of life for them. The dead give the gift of living by providing food and nourishing the water with their life's essence

I for one, admire them greatly - the cultural focus on the advancement of the heart, mind and spirituality - something woven inseparably into the way they live on a daily basis - and reflected in our western eyes as a squalid, poverty stricken existence... perhaps there are some things greater then our current embodiment in this form...
perhaps, but I know I would struggle in those conditions...
and who am I to judge or question?
Some of the stuff we get up to behind closed doors in our so-called 'civilized' societies these days are wretched and just as bad if not worse!
