Regardless of Covid or not, this is hideous. So far something like 2,000 corpses have been recovered floating down the river.

Apparently this happened back in 1918 during that pandemic.


Peeps cant even afford to bury their own families.

Just think, people take a bath and wash their clothes in that every day.

I think you will find that most people inhabiting this planet cant afford to bury their dead. They just have to.

Some might argue that the ganges is self cleaning.

I'm not going to link it, there's too many links and most dont seem very unbiased

This is despicable.

The US should show more support, and aid.

I suggest sending India some FEMA Coffins.

And WalMarts.

India has been dumping their dead down that river for thousands of years, it's just the norm over there.

They also s**t in the street- that's fairly new to the US west coast, but it's been going on in India for hundreds of generations.


It's a different world over there.

There are people over there that eat the ashes and pieces of flesh from the cremation 'leftovers'.

The Indians send their dead off in the Ganges, it's what they do in that area. Nothing new.

What you have here is basic propaganda to push more fear of Covid down your throat. It is Reuters afterall.

Now, if you look at the sinful BBC version, their propaganda is brilliant. They state the river is SWOLLEN with dead bodies!
BBC

Yet another piece of media nonsense, filtering through all media outlets, to push the fear into the public.

Sure, it's crazy to put dead bodies in a river you wash in, swim in, pray in, but it's nothing new. It's what they do.

About a third of their population gets their drinking water from that river.

As a child, I knew a US Army veteran that was in the China-Burma-India Theater in WWII, specifically India. When his unit arrived in country, they were given an orientation class outdoors. At the beginning of the orientation, the officer giving it took a jar and dipped it into the Ganges River. He held it up in the air and it looked clear. He sat it down and said he would get back to it later.
After the class was over, he lifted the jar for all to see again. It had a brown layer at the bottom. He told them that the brown layer was 'unadulterated Indian #'. He told them to never drink any water other than that which was supplied to them at camp or had been treated with purification tablets.

You would think they would have enough sense to burn/cremate the corpse.

And they have in general, its just that obviously some people are rather thick or simply don't give a rats arse.

I would suggest education to be the key, but a lot of these poor sods dont even have proper access to clean water sources and food never mind a school.

My best friend from high school is Indian, not the teepee kind, the restaurant buffet kind, and when his old man died suddenly a couple years ago they brought his ashes back to India and scattered them in the Ganges. It's just a thing.

For many people, it is too expensive to cremate the bodies of their loved ones. Sometimes, they can afford some wood, but not enough to completely consume the body. Whatever is left unburned is thrown into the river.

Ive got a big mate Baljinder from here but he is Indian, when his dad died they did the same, its a religious thing as the Ganges is personified in Hinduism as a goddess, and Hindus believe that if a persons ashes are scattered in the river that their next life will be improved.

Ashes and corpses through is a bit of a different matter i suppose.

I know that butcherguy, its a sticky wicket and hell of a predicament for some of the poor sods over there.

India is no fun whatsoever if you are impoverished, class/caste system is still rife also.
