... way for the train we grabbed some quick lunch and mapped put our next two weeks travel so what had happened in Gorakpir wouldn't happen again.
We were due off at 4.40 from platmorm 8 at the staition and got there with plenty of time to spare.

... them get cremated and the ashes put into the Ganges but in some conditions you don't get cremated your body is just put in instead. These conditions are; children under 10, pregnant ladies, holy men, people with leprosy or if you've been been poisoned (ie bitten by a snake).
