The new crown epidemic in India is serious, but the number of deaths due to the new crown every day is only more than 2,000. How can it be possible that the crematorium is not enough? The more than 2,000 a day has not increased much compared to the size of India?
In addition, by the way, answer the questions of some friends in the comment area. Q1: This answer is not what you asked? A1: It’s too long to read the summary. Whether burning wood or burning cow dung eggs, it is more likely to fall into a shortage of supply than the kerosene/electricity used in modern crematoriums; and firewood dealers are willing to maintain the current shortage. In order to obtain excess profits. The rest of the content is to illustrate the rationality of burning wood/cow dung… Q2: Is it impossible to burn wood with wood? A2: No need to burn through. After the wood is burned, the rest will be poured into the Ganges River. In the final analysis, the purpose of burning a corpse is to break the shackles of the body and free the soul. This can be achieved without burning through. Q3: Why do we have to use wood instead of gasoline/kerosene/diesel/electricity? A3: Hindu funeral norms require a pyre, where the corpse is placed in the middle or underneath the shelf and burned. It is impossible to build a shelf with all kinds of oil and electricity… and in fact, if the wooden shelf is built, oil is used to ignite/support combustion, but the traditional preference is to use ghee. Q4: Why do big families pursue sandalwood? Why don’t you use other more expensive wood to show off your wealth? A4: Simply put, sandalwood symbolizes Shiva, and Shiva is in charge of life and death. Other precious woods do not have this bonus. Q5: Why is it acceptable to burn cow dung? A5: Cow dung is one of the five treasures of cattle. It is a common medium used in various Hindu rituals alongside sandalwood. It is cheap and resistant to burning, so why can’t it be accepted… Q6: Food-grade gift-boxed cattle Dung egg? excuse me? A6: Okay, this is a stalk. It mainly satirizes those silly foreigners who don’t know how to read or read and buy things to eat in India, but it seems that some friends have not been able to get this stalk…cow dung cake (cow dung cake) The main use is an auxiliary prop for Hindu worship rituals, which cannot be eaten (so actually burning dead bodies is also an off-label usage). But from time to time, there are silly foreigners who are confused by the appearance and packaging of this product and buy it foolishly (especially after the popularity of online shopping), so this is the reason. For example, this kind of thing, put it on Amazon, prime members return it with free shipping, is it easy to be recruited… friends, imagination, imagination is very important… Let’s not mention whether India is really dying more than two thousand every day. , Let’s just talk about cremation. Cremation in India and China are different. The crematoriums in India and China are also different. The profit models of cremation services in India and China are even more different. Take Varanasi as an example (the cremation old man in other places did not participate). Before the epidemic, the government charged 375 rupees (about 30 yuan) for the cremation in Varanasi, which is a small head. Then, the corpse yard uses additional items such as selling flowers, selling coconuts, selling ghee, selling diesel, selling incense, and so on, for an additional fee of around 3,000 rupees (about 260 yuan), which is also a small head. The big head is firewood. Depending on the body size, the body’s BMI, the quality of the firewood, and whether it is mixed with cow dung eggs and other factors, the burning yard in Varanasi requires almost 200-500 kilograms of firewood to burn a corpse. The corpse burning yard provides 5 sticks of firewood for free, and the family members need to make the rest. And there are quite a few doorways in Chai. Normal people may spend three to five thousand rupees to a little over ten thousand, buy some ordinary grade wood to burn. But from time to time, there are large families who burn sandalwood, even Himalayan alpine sandalwood, and even Nepal imported golden sandalwood. Then there will be no capping… But in short, regardless of whether the funeral is successful or not, the important factor and the main cost are firewood. Or, let’s just say so…saving money to buy firewood to burn yourself has always been the most common begging rhetoric of Varanasi beggars: Oh, yes, there are cow dung eggs, this is really a clever invention: the poor man’s The best choice, the price is cheap, and it is resistant to burning. The key is that the degree of doctrinal compliance has exploded, and it is more compliant than sandalwood. If you burn all cow dung eggs, about 2,000 rupees is enough, but most people tend to choose chai and cow dung mixed burning even if they lack money… After all, this is the last chance to show off their wealth in their lives. (But now cow dung eggs have also begun to be rolled, and they are beginning to pay attention to the place of origin, beef grid, organic, no additives, various certifications and the like… The most expensive food-grade gift box of cow dung eggs costs 200 rupees a small box, grab it Human) So this is the situation. On the one hand, whether burning wood or burning cow dung eggs, compared with modern crematoriums burning electricity or kerosene, it is more likely to fall into a shortage of supply; on the other hand, the profiteer genes carved in the bones of the Indians will obviously not let go. Opportunity… Now that even oxygen can rise to 90,000 rupees a bottle, how can there be no reason to increase the price of firewood, which is more important for Hindus? Therefore, most of the firewood dealers are willing to maintain the current state of shortage : all the way from 3,000 rupees to 30,000 rupees, this is still the price a week ago, I don’t know what the market is now, hehehe.
