Awaiting entry to eternity: An elderly sick woman looks up as bodies are cremated at a ghat near the Pashupatinath temple. People from far away lands bring their ready-to-die relatives here to ensure that the latter are cremated immediately after their demise. The belief is that this action would ensure an early entry for the dead into eternal life. Photographed @ Kathmandu, Nepal
