Recently it was reported in a news paper that since there is no cemetery for dalits in a village they cremated a dead body in front of the local panchayat office. Such things though strange are happening in India.

If they are using tulsi plants, then they must be Hindus and they must be cremating the dead and not burrial. If it is cremation, after sometime, place is clear from any sign of dead and can be used for any purpose.

If there is no burial ground in the village then the families will do whatever they can..
