GN: Hundreds watch couple try to 'resurrect' son

So according to this article in GN today, a couple in Hyderabad were arrested for digging out their son's grave (he died 40 days ago) in an attempt to resurrect him - infront of an audience of a hundreds of people. The couple apparently had 'supernatural powers to resurrect the dead'.

Aside from how wacko the whole thing was, what stuck me as odd was the 'digging the grave bit'. Why you ask?

Well from the names of the couple I understand that they are Hindus and from what I know Hindus don't bury the dead right?

Correct me if I'm wrong guys.

Yes, but Jummy these people were trying to prove their miraculous powers.. so they did something out of line by first burying their son instead of cremating him and then trying to exhume his poor body to bring him back to life.

^^ Just chill! It is reported in the GN. It is a topic that may be of interest to readers in the UAE--hence it is published in the GN. Would you prefer instead to call in the relvence police?

Even the shooting in VT is reported in GN/KT and Emirates Today.

What's your point ?

My point is that topics of interest (or relevance) to people in the UAE are not simply limited to those that refer to UAE events. People in the UAE are interested in contemporary topics beyond their borders. What is your point?

Wow! What a nice things for those parents to do! In this day and age or war, pestilence, famine and broken homes, there can never be too much affection between parents and their kids. I hope someone cares about me that much after I'm gone. Sometimes I worry....

I agree with kochumanavalan/MJ (the young bridegroom etc :) - however would add - emphasis/priority be given to UAE based issues/topics - first & foremost.

Live within the 4 walls - and you could end up ignorant as an Eskimo :(

Samurai - what say you, sam? : )
