Power cuts have even affected the crematoriums. Pictured is a family on the background of a coffin that had to be kept for three hours until the power cut ended. Photo by Asoka Fernando
Shouldnt the family take the crematorium staff and the municipal council to court for the pain of mind and the inconvenience caused?They should ask for compensation(perhaps to be handed over to a charity!)
No point isnt it? The verdict would be obvious!
It’s a sad sight to see the grieving family having to wait for three hours to cremate
their loved one, but what can one do, when nature created the problem, by causing a drought, which compelled authorities to impose power cuts! There is no purpose in blaming the authorities or the owners of the crematorium, as some people rush to do, because even governments cannot prevent droughts, and the associated problems that come with it..
This million times better than the funerals of murdered two Tamil youths by Jail Murders of the State.
Here again is a misleading “Caption” media often use, to make a mountain out of a mole hill! These people should have found out the time of the power cut & adjusted the cremation accordingly. Every one who use state power know that there is a power cut, what ever reason one may attribute for it. Where on earth do you have unfailing power?
Suren, agree with you partially, but suggest you get out of Sri Lanka or for that matter brows the Internet to and you’ll find how many countries offer uninterrupted power supply. Anyway, there are worse things happening in our country and therefore, in the bigger scheme of things, this is nothing.
