Photographer's Note

The hearse or rickshaw for the deceased waiting isolated for next deceived ...

In the background you see a burial of a traffic-victim coming from the hospital, informed me the manager of the graveyard, he won't be cremated but buried in the ground.

Smoke is hanging all around here coming from the other side where poor people prefer to cremate their deceased not having the possibility to afford a tomb. A cremation cost only 500Rps.

The manager gave me the permission to share this particular part of Tamil Culture and to maintain some discretion I used a Tele here all the time.

On the way to the graveyard in the WS.
