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

Why are so many dying in India? Covid is not deathly for 98 percent of people. Only sick and elderly? I don't understand???

western media has to understand sensitivity of Indian culture of last rites which is very personal to Indian family who lost their loved one... will you guys show cremation videos of COVID19 victims in US, UK or EU?... I saw nytimes report where they just showed scatter plot to represent death toll of 500,000.

No fault of the government, I think the people are careless so this happened. And lockdown cannot be the solution for covid. We should love ourselves and our family and maintain all the guidelines of WHO

We used to watch in TV people dieing in US and EU thinking we are immune, it was the lockdown that saved an early disaster in India, we recognize our mistake now and we feel sorry for EU and US now. We stumbled in April but not anymore hopefully.

तुम्हारे पास जमीन बहुत ज्यादा और जनसंख्या बहुत ही कम, दुसरे मुल्कों की लूटी हुई दोलत तुम्हारे पास, परंतु यदि सनातनी ऐक हो जाये और इन दल्ले जयचंदो की गर्मागर्म सिकाइ कर दे तो, सनातन संस्कृति विश्व में पहली ताकत हो सकती उ

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

Idolatry, superstitions n rituals +corruption in full throttle in all aspects of life. This EGYPTIAN N MESOPOTAMIAN HINDUISM BROUGHT CURSE TO MY INDIA. KUMBH MELA, IDOLS IMMERSION N VARIOUS SACRIFICES INCLUDING HUMAN SACRIFICES POISONS WATER IN THE RIVERS N AIR, THIS POISONED WATER PEOPLE IN DOWN DRINK, ANIMALS DRINK N USED FOR AGRICULTURE THUS EVERY THING IS POISONED. 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.
