The Funeral

A good friend of mine from Bombay told me about a funeral he attended a couple of days ago. A funeral — except no one died.

It was a mock funeral for a tree, complete with Hindu rites and rituals, the obligatory mourners, flowers and lookers-on. Oh, and liberal amounts of red paint for dramatic effect. This was ostensibly not a very peaceful passing for this hapless tree.

All to raise awareness of global warming among India’s youth.
