Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Nothing could be starker in contrast. The mortal body of the guru behind 'transcedental meditation', with a fan following of the who's who in Hollywood and elsewhere, is to be taken in a procession in Allahabad and then to be cremated.

In contrast Baba Amte wished that he be buried so that that every part of his body be utilised rather than add to pollution. Baba's desire for a burial was so that micro-organisms in the soil feed on his body and every bit of it gets utilized rather than the ash polluting water sources.

Wonder who's the real guru?
