I am extremely sad and angry.

A thing that any father and mother should never have to do. A couple loses their young child and go to a ghat to bury his body. The ghat is in a very sorry state with dogs digging up remains of buried bodies. Someone picks up the story and files a PIL. The Government promises quick action.

So what has enraged me. The lines below from the PIL (emphasis mine).

That the Petitioner being a staunch Hindu from upper caste with status in life and good family background along with his above mentioned cousin and family prepared the body of master Raghav for being taken to a crematorium for dignified and honorable cremation.

Doesn’t a Hindu from lower class without status is life, whatever that means, have a right to diginified burial for his/her child?
