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

    I salute the people working at these place. Today my grandfather passed away. Never in my life was I so guilty. When he was boarding on the ambulance, he joined his hands to my family. Just before 7 days of his demise, he was so fine and nice. He sat with us drank tea and told us stories. I love you dadaji
