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

  • 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.
