Wood for cremation fires is running out across India. While bodies continue to fill the streets the Modi regime has pushed a political agenda of self promotion and ignored a rapidly growing health catastrophe. On this episode we are joined by Sagar Sanyal to discuss how this crisis happened, what the Indian ruling class could have done to prevent it, and why capitalism is responsible for mass murder.
