They Hindu's worship the loss and wish them well into the afterlife. What they do is they all dress in white, to symbolise purity and then the burn the body. firstly the body is sprinkled with waters from the Ganges. Then burnt. the ash left is then put in a pot and a ceremony next to the Ganges itself takes place before the ash and pot is put into the water.
