Our final tour for the day brought us to the international Hindu temple where Hindus come from all over the world to worship Lord Shiva and to cremate their dead according to proper Hindu tradition.  Words cannot describe the emotions we felt when we saw how lost and broken the grieving people were in that place.  As we observed from the far side of the river, bodies were being ceremoniously prepared for burning.  The playful monkeys were oblivious to the sober scene.  Our hearts were heavy to witness the sorrow and emptiness of a Hindu funeral.
