1015: “A bier with remains of a corpse”

A bier has surfaced on the other side of the river. It is not unlikely that the turtles have finished the corpse. In Semitic religions the corpse is buried and ‘preserved’ for the day of the last judgment. In hindu tradition it is said that the body is only a temporary dwelling, like clothes one discards at night. Only ignorant people find it difficult to leave that body. Everyone has passed through many bodies, and many are likely to have to come back in other bodies.

Aan de overkant is een lijkbaar aangespoeld. Het lijk is wellicht door de schildpadden in de rivier verorberd. In tegenstelling tot de Semitische religies die het lijk ‘bewaren’, is voor de hindoe het lichaam maar een tijdelijke woonst, niet gemakkelijk om te verlaten voor wie ‘onwetend’ is. Iedereen heeft al veel lichamen gehad en misschien moeten velen nog in verscheidene lichamen terugkomen.

A bier with remains of a corpse on the opposite shore of the Ganges at Banaras (Varanasi); India. Usually a body is cremated, except when there is not enough money for the fire.

1013: A Sailing vessel on the Ganges

Transporting goods with a rugged sailing boat at the Ganges near Banaras Varanasi in India. You may wonder it sails at all, heavy loaded with sand as it is, but these people know their business and look like they have all the time in the world ..

De ‘heilige’ Ganges, langs de haren van Shiva op aarde neergedaald; biedt reiniging van zonden en van ander vuil. Bron van inkomsten voor velen. Bedreigd door nucleaire pollutie als ooit de energiebron die in de gletsjer waaruit de Ganges ontspringt barst! In de jaren zestig werd in de Indiase Himalaja een ‘spion’ geplaatst om naar China te kijken. Door het noodweer gedwongen moesten de bergbeklimmers de nucleaire aandrijving achterlaten…, en ze hebben het tuig nooit teruggevonden. Decennia later is het schandaal uitgebroken. Afwachten maar.
