the pyre shot

I did not go to the ghat when my grandmother died.

 Neither did my mother.

It was not done those days.

 Women didn't  go with men to see the dead burn.

The pyre shot was seen only in the cinema.

maybe we started going to the funeral,

we gave asthi to our dad,


they have stopped showing the famous pyre shot

in todays cinema.

if and when i make a film,

i will definately

shoot a pyre shot.
