The national capital Delhi saw a devastating arrival of the second wave. While thousands of people lost their lives daily, many struggled to breathe as they couldn’t arrange oxygen cylinders due to the ongoing oxygen crisis.

The vaccines faced a shortage, which forced the government to halt the vaccination drive for people between 18-44 again. The abrupt number of COVID-19 deaths brimmed the city with bodies, which caused a crunch of space in crematoriums. Wood and timber for cremating the bodies also faced a shortage. The Kejriwal government kept their mum, not helping the sobbing citizens, as their mismanagement led to this deadly COVID-19 crisis.

Many hospitals admitted that the AAP government’s negligence led to the oxygen crisis that killed thousands of Delhi residents. 

The Kejriwal government as always, habitual of stepping back from its responsibilities, admitted not having “enough space” to store the oxygen when the central government supplied the oxygen. How can the government turn barefaced and justify its careless act in the name of impetuous negligence? Who should be held responsible for the deaths of the people?

Many children lost their parents, while many lost their breadwinners. The government can provide them with financial support, but who will provide them with emotional support? Meanwhile, the vaccines are in acute shortage in Delhi the governments, both central and state, are playing blame-game instead of making the arrangements for citizens. All these instances clearly indicate the arrival of a deadly third wave of COVID.

Commendable move: Delhi crematorium stores ashes, as the family couldn’t collect them

Several crematoriums in Delhi have stored the ashes in storerooms as many family members couldn’t collect them. While some feared catching the virus, others couldn’t attend the last rites as they were also infected with COVID. In Nigambodh Ghat, the officials said, “as Delhi was excruciating with the second wave, many family members couldn’t come to attend the last rites or do the immersion of their loved ones who lost their lives. Hence we have stored their ashes, and the families can take it to perform their immersion.”

“From April 1 to May 20, we conducted the final rites of 2,500 people. In that case, the ashes of 50 were probably left unattended. Part of this was because families were scared or in financial trouble, ”said Aadesh Sharma, head of the crematorium, adding that the ashes were kept in a separate room. The Coordinator of the crematorium, Suman Gupta, said, “we have received a few calls from the people who were not able to attend the last rites of their loved ones.

They have asked us to store it for later so that when the situation improves, they can immerse it.” He also mentioned, if the families still can’t visit the crematory to collect the ashes due to any reason, the Ghat Samiti would perform its last rites in such cases. 

Similarly, in a crematorium in Punjabi Bagh, the ashes of 25-30 people have been kept. The families who couldn’t complete the last rites of their loved ones during the second wave outbreak, can come and do it now, at their convenience. In Devotthan Sewa Samiti, 12 volunteers are collecting the ashes of people for the same reason.

Vijay Sharma, secretary-general of the organization, said, “We have made sure that everyone has a happy ending concerning their health. We have been assisting with the process of embalming for 19 years. Most of the Covid was left untouched. So we decided to collect them and immerse them in Haridwar on October 1. ”
