The Hindu priest struggling to cremate India’s Covid dead

RamKaran Mishra is a Hindu priest who performs the last rites at the Ghazipur crematorium in east Delhi, on the frontline of India's Covid crisis. He's been cremating up to 150 bodies day after day, working long hours into the night. With no end in sight, and feeling abandoned by his government, Mishra must deal with traumatised families and an ever-present smell of burning bodies

    साले ये विदेशी मीडिया अपने यहां के लोगों के अंतिम संस्कार का video नहीं बनाते हैं क्यूंकि ये मरने वालों की गरिमा के खिलाफ होता है और ये भारत में आ के श्मशान में जा कर video बना रहे हैं, ये सब भारत और मोदी जी को बदनाम करने की साजिश है, कुत्ते साले,, लाशों पर अपनी रोटियाँ सेक रहे है

THUS BRING DESTRUCTION N CURSE ON THE COUNTRY. HINDUISM ORIGINALLY NOT INDIA' ACCORDING TO BALAGANGADHAR TILAK N GOLWALKER' WRITTEN N PUBLISHED IN1903 BOOK. NATIVES FORCEFULLY CONVERTED INTO HINDUISM N DEGRADED AS BORN FROM BRAHMINS FOOT. EVEN THE NUMBERS THEY GIVE FOR INFECTION N DEATH IS FALSE. REAL NUMBER IS MORE THEN 20-30% ABOVE. THIS IS HOW SANATHANA DHARAM CONVERTED INDIA.
