They lay him on a blanket and cover him over, money is fluttered out the train window and from nowhere a huge bunch of incense is lit by the bodies head. The death rites are being performed right in front of our carriage on the roadside.
Huge amounts of Dong are thrown by passengers and bystanders, we don't know what the symbolism is ...
