ABC Wednesday: J for Journey

Paving way for the last Journey at the Ghats of Haridwar, India. Three sons doing the last rights of their departed parent.

I clicked this photo from the other side of the Ghat.

That would be a sad journey..saying goodbye to departed parents.

I had to say goodbye to mine many years ago.

Following last rites is so important, not just to the deceased, but to those left behind. I think these rites help ease the passing. Thanks for sharing.
