Video of Assam man carrying dead brother on cycle surfaces
Starting from Odisha tribal Daana Maji, visuals of several poor Indians carrying their dead have emerged.
Most recently, a man in Assam carried his dead brother on his cycle for 8 kms from a hospital in Garamur to his village Balijan.
As NewsCrunch had earlier noted, his village does not have a motorable road and is linked by a bamboo bridge.
While a hearse was available at Garamur hospital, it was the road which was missing in this case.
An ANI video published by Patrika brings home how tenuous conditions under which many Indians live.
As the man hauls the dead brother, the bamboo bridge groans threatebing to give away under their weight.
