IT HAPPENS ONLY IN INDIA.
We have heard of medical package.
We have heard of travel package.
We have heard of salary package.
Has anyone heard of cremation package?
My sister-in-law passed away suddenly last week.
May her soul rest in peace.
The day after her death, we had to perform the last rites as per our customs and contacted the cremation ground management for arrangements.We wanted to take our family pundit besides other important inputs.
What we were informed was that, --- irrespective of the fact that we will take our family pundit and other inputs; we will have to pay for the complete cremation “package”.
Is it part of globalisation?
Is it part of loot which is prevalent around us?
Is it possible for poor to pay “package” rates for cremation?
Is it possible that the govt is not a party to this?
Govt, over the last few years has made living very difficult. Why is it making dying so expensive and difficult? For God’s sake, please spare the cremation grounds.
PAPPU is still awaiting ROTI-KAPADA-MAKAAN.
let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW.
