No Burial Site for Hindu Kids in Delhi

NDTV reports that the family of a one-and-a-half-year-old boy could not find a suitable burial site for the kid as they were told Hindu ritual doesn't allow a three-year-old child to be cremated.

The only option the family had was to leave the child at a filthy pool called ‘bacha ghat.’

As per Hindu ritual small children are buried, if their parents are alive. In villages and small towns, there is still enough space to bury the dead. But in big cities this is no longer the case.

The ideal option is to bring flexibility in rituals and allow the dead children to be cremated.
