Indian crematorium converts parking lot to burn increasing dead

Smoke billows from dozens of pyres lit inside a parking lot that has been turned into a makeshift crematorium, after India’s capital was gripped by a deadly wave of the pandemic that has deluged its hospitals and crematoriums equally. Loved ones filled with grief for their lost family members watch and perform rites as the pyres burn. "People are just dying, dying and dying... with increasing speed and there is no sign of relief," says Jitender Singh Shanty, the coordinator of the crematorium, who says he has now seen cremations numbering over 100 per day for two days in a row.
