we burn the living to cremate the dead; we pollute our environment to purify souls A traditional Hindu funeral pyre burns anything between 500 to 600 kilograms of wood and takes over six hours This implies that an estimated 50 to 60 million trees are cut and burnt annually in India for cremations — that is millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gas emissions As per the journal Nature more than three million people across the world die prematurely because of outdoor pollution; China and India lead this pack Now if you think polluting funerals are neither a big problem nor your problem sadly these impressions are a part of the problem Traditional cremations are one cause of air pollution we can do something about Well almost — the trouble is conversations about the environment or funerals don’t appeal to most people First we assume innocence by believing we do not contribute to our cities’ foul air But recently on Diwali we burst crackers regardless of public appeals and warnings by the authorities In the midst of the odd-even traffic arrangements in Delhi my neighbour whined about its inconvenience and burnt her termite-eaten mattress instead of simply discarding it Like other issues we believe pollution to be the government’s burden Hence for most Hindus the traditional wood-fired funeral is the only choice Despite the recent visible haze in Delhi pollution and its hazards simply don’t seem to worry us Is it not strange that burning dry leaves attracts a fine of 5000 rupees in Delhi — but cutting and burning thousands of trees for cremations is not even a talking point Second talking about death or questioning traditional cremations is often seen as inappropriate even difficult These are “sensitive” issues we are told and being squeamish about these is acceptable All this makes building a case against the traditional (wood-fired) pyre tough Electric or CNG-run crematoriums are definitely less polluting Delhi-based environmental group Mokshda Paryavaran Evam Van Suraksha Samiti offers eco-friendly “green cremations” that use only 100 kilograms of wood and take two hours However the usage of these alternatives is low because they aren’t seen as ceremonial enough We exist in a time when “sentiment” can nullify sane argument So unable to do much the authorities in Delhi surrendered to sentiment; they now hope to install smoke tappers in crematoriums But when appeals to rationality don’t work what would make us think and act better What will help stretch our imagination and make us kinder to nature and ourselves Ironically Hindu philosophy claims to revere all forms of life including trees Hindu mantras deify rivers mountains trees animals and of course the earth Rituals and prayers around these had a special place for our ancestors and trees remain a precious part of our heritage In fact a spiritual understanding blurs the human and non-human divide seeing humans as embedded in the cosmos — why do we then not practice this big-picture view of the universe and nature with its innate environmentalism Maybe because unlike our philosophies we see ourselves as distinct and superior from nature After all we are self-indulgent animals whose hallmark is narcissism Most of us live and leave with big carbon footprints and a trajectory of emissions At least when we finally check out why not clean up after yourself It will be good karma and good dharma Think afresh Choose creation over tradition The author is a social scientist and writer For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsMeerut | Published: February 2 2014 12:37 am Related News A minor girl was allegedly gangraped by almost a dozen people after they abducted and sedated her in Mawana town on Thursday The victim had been staying at her uncle’s place while preparing for her class X exams The accused three of whom have been arrested live in the same locality The victim was returning from the market Thursday when she was pulled into a car and taken to a deserted house where she was allegedly injected with sedatives and gangraped After three hours she was taken by the accused to a forest in Itchauli and dumped there? download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Published: November 2,” she said.1 of my favorite hiphop groups…hiphop raised a lot of us & now we have to wake up because are hero’s are dying too young (sic).

had given her ‘triple talaaq’ While the couple opted for triple talaaq consensually the lower court denied a deed of divorce to the applicant Rashidaben Rassiwala under the Civil Procedure Code saying this kind of talaaq was not legally valid Watch what else is making news: Justice Sonia Gokani quashed family court’s order and directed it to decide the application afresh in eight weeks Rashidaben married Abbas Latiwala in 2002 From 2010 they began to live separately with Abbas marrying another woman In 2015 Rashidaben filed a suit for a deed of divorce to formalise the ‘triple talaq’ given by her husband Abbas endorsed her claim that they were divorced by mutual consent using the triple talaaq procedure under the Sharia law The family court however rejected the application saying the ‘triple talaaq’ had no legal validity and she had not furnished a clear proof of divorce Rashidaben then moved the High Court which in its order on January 25 set aside the family court’s order “The petitioner lady is educated and is working as a teacher The husband has already remarried after they separated There is no dispute with regard to the fact that word ‘talaq’ has been thrice uttered” the HC said also noting that it had spoken to the couple to ascertain their wishes “They both needed this decree for the purpose of preparation of official documents In absence of any provision like

Swadeshi Jagaran Manch (SJM) has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly opposing his government’s decision to retain UPA’s FDI policy in multi-brand retail and saying it is against “the trust” reposed by the people in BJP In his letter to the PM on May 22 SJM national convenor Ashwani Mahajan accused the BJP government of doing a “U-turn” and sought a clarification on its position on FDI in multi-brand retail The SJM’s objection to the government’s stand comes at a time when the BJPis celebrating its one year in power Share This Article Related Article RSS-affiliated bodies have

allowing foreign retailers to open multi-brand stores with 51 per cent ownership “The SJM puts on record its pain and disapproval and demands that the government immediately clarify its position take corrective measures and drop FDI in multi-brand retail from the list of sectors permitted for FDI” the letter stated “This is not the policy of BJP it was UPA’s policy BJP has always maintained that it’s a wrong policy BJP leaders had argued that this would make Indians sales boys and girls; it will shift ownership to the US and manufacturing to China So the government should immediately correct it” he said In his letter Mahajan said SJM was disappointed with BJP’s reluctance to do away with the policy “People expected that your government will roll back the anti-people decision of the previous regime But it is shockingly painful to note that in an elusive chase of a mirage of satisfying foreign investors BJP has decided to take blame of U-turn and ensure continuity of the policy of
