Indian Hearse

Funerals in India are more public than in the West. The body can be laid out for days with special pooja flower displays. And then there's the cremation funeral pyre. We ran across a hearse on the streets of Kolkata and its design echoed this public spirit.

The understated funeral home entrance.

Out front, their hearse. Looking a bit like a chopped minivan married to a pope mobile.

The back.

Jumbo windows allow for full viewing.
