Script excerpt for chapter 9
The chant of the bearers in the alleys of Veranasi is always the same: „now all deceit is over“ they sing.
Nothing is left.
But for a life to end here in this holy land already so near to the Gods - that could influence the decision, offer a last proof that one really is worthy - worthy enough never to have to return to this world of deceit again.
Inteview with Sonu
SONU: Actually my country is holy place. People also dead into another countrey, so he’s taking ashes, aome to in here to put into river.
Actually people he like to ... He want to ... here bodies come into holy place My country is holy place. People also dead into another country, so he is taking ashes come to in here he put into river.
Actually people here is also come from Bihar, other people will come from other country pray into Ganga pray into God.
Why this body burns ? If you do fire so that soul to go is strict to Nirwana you know. This time is really dead. So this soul is going strict to Nirwana.
Wood is for take it threehundredsixty kilos wood for one body burn take each. There is one kilo hundredfifty rupee kilo in wood, but my family buy wood from M.P. - Madhya Pradesh.
One body burning total cost may be I think fivethousend Rupees for all
I do – I know – I ‘ve seen my life so many body cremated
My father is working in the burning Ghatt you know.
First body bring into near Ganga My father just you said which time body bringing here you know.

He wash into holy water.
After before family he open dead person mouth. He take holy water, he give the five time of water.
After my father he give little gras. So his younger sun he do five rounds into body.
He put inside wood fire so he start for burn.
At which time body starts burning he have something powdering like a sandal-powder or ghee, like something. So body is smelling good you know, like a perfume.
Which time body take it burning take it three hours time for finish.
Take it three hours time for finish. But that three hours time two part body don’t burn. Actually that two part body is very strong you know.
Maybe is this man body. Man’s chest. If a woman body woman hip.
Man’s chest is strong. Woman hip is also strong. That two piece don’t burn. So he put into river.
The river is some fish eating total human body-meat, you know.
After burning family collects the ashes to put into river
Which time body is finished some family is going to a separate Ghatt , he bath into that Ghatt after that he go back home.
But some people also you don’t burn. That is my country five kind a special body don’t cremated. Is holy man, is small child, is snake bite, pregnant woman, leprabite. That body is already pure for God.
Child, if he you do some bad karma, you don’t know. Holy man is my God. Holy pregnant woman inside baby is also pure. A snake-bite my Shiva-God ring. A small pocks is my God Shetla , mother. That five body don’t cremated. That he take big a stone all tight to body’s string, take one seperate boat, put into river.
Then is some inside big fish eating meat in human body.
Actually now I am dead so I am go river, you know. So which time I am dead like a twenty years old or fifteen years old, so I am burns. Maybe I go river but I don’t know which time I am dead what I am do it. My family what he do for me, put into river or he do make me fire. I don’t know.
Fire or river - Sonu doesn’t particularly mind.
But what is death anyway.
" Ram ram sabte heh!“: Death is only the end of deceit!
Wealth and happiness, misery and success: „Ram ram sabte heh!“
The wheel is turning.
Only a madman could think there's anything else.
