NZ Society - Diversity in Death (Part 2)

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 16 March 2012

From Auckland to Wellington, Lynda Chanwai-Earle meets members of the Hindu communities to focus on diversity in death. She speaks to a man with decades of experience in funeral rites at the Hindu Temple in Kilbirnie and explores how this faith from India deals with the tricky issue of whether open air cremations, one of their common rituals, can happen here in New Zealand.
