This is scarier (FTFA)...Sat Pal Aggarwal, a doctor on the pilgrimage, said few checks were carried out to see if victims were alive and might have been saved.

"People were dumped quite haphazardly into trucks without following any procedure or checking if they were alive," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

I don't know how they generally dispose of bodies in India (funeral pyre, burial, etc.), but hopefully no one was still living when the funeral rites were carried out.

Cremation is the traditional method. Often a son is called upon to make a ceremonial strike on the person's head at some early point in the burning, though presumably any corpse planning on reanimating would have reanimated by that point

I would hope so. Being burned alive is a particularly nasty way to die.

Man, you gotta be darn thirsty to wake up from the dead to ask for a glass of water.

I would have preferred something with a little more kick to it, but all they gave me was a couple of ice chips ;)

You're supposed to cut off the head as soon as possible to prevent this.

So Tim's Indian now?

Tim Finnegan lived in Walkin Street
A gentle Irishman, mighty odd;
He'd a beautiful brogue so rich and sweet
And to rise in the world he carried a hod.
Now, Tim had a bit of the tipplin' way
With a love for the liquor poor Tim was born
And to help him on with his work each day
He'd a "drop of the Craythur every morn.

Chorus:

Whack fol the dah O, dance to your partner
Welt the floor, your trotters shake;
Wasn't it the truth I told you
Lots of fun at Finnegan's wake!

One mornin' Tim was rather full
His head felt heavy which made him shake;
He fell from the ladder and broke his skull
And they carried him home his corpse to wake.
They rolled him up in a nice clean sheet
And laid him out upon the bed,
A gallon of whiskey at his feet
And a barrel of porter at his head.

Chorus

His friends assembled at the wake
And Mrs. Finnegan called for lunch,
First she brought in tay and a cake
Then pipes, tobacca' and whiskey punch.
Biddy O'Brien began to cry
"Such a nice clean corpse, did you ever see?
"O Tim, mavourneen[1], why did you die?"
"Arragh, hold your gob[2]" cried Paddy McGee!

Chorus

Then Maggie O'Connor took up the job
"O Biddy," says she, "You're wrong, I'm sure"
Biddy she gave her a belt in the gob
And left her sprawlin' on the floor.
And then the war did soon engage
'Twas woman to woman and man to man,
Shillelagh law was all the rage
And a row and a ruction soon began.

Chorus

Then Mickey Maloney ducked his head
When a noggin of whiskey flew at him,
It missed, and falling on the bed
The liquor scattered over Tim!
Tim revives! See how he rises!
Tim he rises from the dead,
Says, "Whirl your whiskey around like blazes"
"Thanum an Dhul[3], do you think I'm dead?"

Is there some kind of stampede at every festival in India? It always seems like there are at least a couple of deaths every time a bunch of Indians get together. The best example I could think of was that annual kite festival they have....crazy stuff.

Note that they cleared the bodies and kept the thing going, quite literally.

When I read the headline I was in bewilderment as to how we are still mistaking the living for the dead. Then I saw it was from India and it wasn't so confusing. My stereotype of the country was strengthened when I read it was due to a human stampede of people climbing up a steep narrow path because their religion tells them too.

Note to self:

Don't fall asleep while in India.

So India is made up of geniuses and lemmings only? No middle ground there at all huh?

It was India. The smell of the water is enough to wake the dead.

It all made sense to me when I saw it happened in India.

I have travelled there on business to Banglapore. There is no respect for the human existence or sanctity of life.

I am not responsible for any of these deaths.

Visit India. It's a big time eye opener, in a thousand ways. It is by turns depressing, beautiful, horrifying, inspiring, familiar and utterly bizzarre.

But they respect the cows right to exist, right? Because that is important. People, eh--there's billions of them. Seriously--billions.

But with more marigolds. I swear, somewhere in India there is a marigold farm the size of Spain. They use 'em for everything. Holiday? That's a marigoldin. Work promotion? That's a marigoldin. Wedding? You better BELIEVE that's a marigoldin!
