Bachche wala ghat

Even the sound of it chills me inside. A place where children are given a sort of a half-burial. It seems Hindu law doesnt provide for cremating children below three years. I didnt know about this.

At first glance, I thought this was something to do with the UP High Court's ruling on minorities. Must say plesantly surprised to know why Hindu priests want to boycott Uttar Pradesh polls. For whatever reason, save the river.

It is really traumatic to imagine the parents unable to give a decent burial for their dead children. Thanks for posting this information on your blog as I didn't know that such atrocities exist!

Too depressing and discomforting a fact! Even the dead can't lie down in peace, how will their relatives!

Yamnotri waters being so fresh and clean, its too saddening to see Yamuna change colors as you trace down the river's trail. Prevention is better than cure holds good for the river's cleansing too.
