Funerals and a game of cricket

The temple of Pashupitnath is a series of beautiful stone buildings that line a section of a small river. Along the banks, people gather to cremate the remains of their family.

When the remains are reduced to ashes, they’re pushed into the river just up stream from a sign that reads, “Save water. Save life.”

Across the river, with the remains smoldering in the background, a group of boys play cricket. I stood for a while watching and still can’t figure out the point of the game.
