Mass cremation, Bhopal 1984
Mass cremations were held alongside the communal graves. ” The bodies were strewn all over and the stench of death was overpowering”, recalls 76-year old Amar Chand Ajmera, a social worker. ” The dead came to the cremation grounds in heap after heap, loaded in pick-up vans. We did not have enough firewood to burn separate pyres. I remember, we cremated more than 2,000 in a day”.
