    Downwind of a cremation has to smell bad.

    Very nice work, Rags. That third shot is an image that really sticks in my mind. I have a good friend who is an experienced world traveler. He tells me that India, as a whole, is the filthiest country he has ever been to, especially if you venture in to the bowels of any congested area.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    "Downwind of a cremation has to smell bad."... It depends on whether Mohammed ate a lot of garlic... :D

    The gov't wants to ban open cremations, but the culture prevents enforcement...

    It could be a function of no piped plumbing (sewer or water supply) & lack of paved roads...

    World travelers can be categorized in two groups; tourists and travelers... for example: I prefer traveler for me - my bride prefers sitting at the pool

    I found it the same as Viet Nam, Cambodia or Nepal.

    The difference is the air; it's dirtier in India; but makes for better sunrises... :)
