"When my grandmother died we took her to the Towers Of Silence. Four men carried the body
into one of the towers. I heard the harsh cry of the vultures and knew that in a matter
of minutes they would strip the flesh from the bones. The skeleton would then lie under
the fierce glare of the tropical sun until it calcified, after which the powdery remains
would be cast into a central well and seep into the Earth. I wasn't revolted because we
have been doing it for centuries. And my grandmother wanted it this way." -- Homi
Dastur, deputy executive secretary of the Hindu Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan
