Different cultures, different customs

Charles Cowling


Here’s an interesting photo from yesterday’s The Hindu of P.K. Vineetha arriving for her funeral. She seems to have been brought in an ambulance and to be contained in the sort of cooling cabinet popular in India (isn’t that a jumble of electrical wire at the head end?) Vineetha was given a Christian funeral, so we wonder whether and when she was transferred to a coffin. Perhaps the GFG’s India correspondent, Vicky Coupland-Morris, will be able to illuminate things for us. Or you, perhaps?
