More appropriate title ought to have been "Haldwani Drinks Death!"
Of the famous 16 Hindu Samskaras, the last is performed for the Hindu population of Haldwani and its neighborhood in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand post death at the relatively better known habitat called Ranibag lying on its outskirts on the Nainital Highway boasts of the most coveted cremation ground in the region.
The dead are brought here not just from the town for cremation but more often than not from even far flung areas in the hope that the dead bodies once cremated here would find their souls passing straight through to Heaven for lasting peace. Be that as it may but the gallery of almost a dozen visuals hosted by Dr. Dinesh Joshi of the Hindu cremation ground at Ranibag are blood curdling to say the least. Not only they present a gruesome but even horrific picture of the goings on.
Just in the name of the ritual the leftovers of the charred body are allowed to be washed away in the river Gaula, the river flowing by.Not only are these left over pollutants are allowed to float adrift through the course of the river taking in its wake all the disease infested potentials posing a serious threat to those who are unfortunate to survive to drink the very same water subsequently pumped (albeit treated) by the local municipal authorities supplied through its channels!
Suffice it to say that greater care has to be taken by the authorities involved to atleast try to ensue that this nuisance is checked forthwith and the living left with a chance to live some more.
This post is in larger public interest.

gentlemen,

permit me to introduce myself, an indian ghost often wandering in himalayas and at few places. please allow me to post some thoughts here. a few years ago we were in haldwani and we consumed much of gaula water in haldwani. generally at home we never fail to purify the water through some chemical as well as ritualistic processes and thus do not worry if water would carry scary elements and spirits. but we seldom remember if the water we drank in haldwani was carrying who and what. and these snapshots are exposing at least what is now residual in our body and soul! i can now associate few weird things happening since then! :shock:

well, no jokes. :-) agreeing with muktesh ji and dinjos12ji, still, however is this people themselves who are responsible or just a conveniently selected class called municipality, what in fact is made of people themselves! to me, people without waiting much for municipality or government, should realize and launch themselves on ground by NOT polluting the water they have to drink.

eventually this topic much align with what has been observed and concluded last year in an aggressive discussions with visiting faculties, authorities and sundry at smashaans. the idea and message is about sanctifying the smashaans themselves, let alone the river (water) pollution attributed to by the holy remains.

traditionally we have to have Chandaals who supervise and facilitate the heavenly transition of souls, Chandaals the executors who are found present at cremation ground should be given strict instructions, if not by government, let it be by learned, senior, designated citizens of haldwani : "NOT TO POLLUTE GAULA, AND NEVER TO LET IT POLLUTE". in our indian tradition, which is much into giving respect to mother nature, we consider river as mother. let the ritual be peaceful, holy, satisfactory, fulfilling and complete in nature, but no compromise with environment.

the smashaan in-charge should be stringent and rude enough to fine a penalty of a decent amount in the event of polluting activities sighted. let there be regular news-alerts as civic service by newspapers, dailies, be there posters at few crucial places including that of Ranibagh mukti dhaam complex, THAT, people have decided NOT TO pollute Gaula at Ranibagh, ultimately to invite alien spirits in their body and soul.

convey this message and even at a later date the dizzy lazy municipality will also wake up. can you deny people will in real be awaken at that time! enlightened and carrying pure water-form within! thank you dinjos12 ji and muktesh ji for your valuable thoughts.

thank you.

it is very shocking to know that the water supplied to city for its domestic purposes is no less than sewage water or the water we find in and around our society lying dirty on road :| :o
