Given the Chinese tradition in inflammable funerary objects, I suspect creating effigies is not a viable business in Pakistan.

Could you give an example of a Chinese "inflammable funerary object?" The mind candesces.

Thank you. That was fascinating.

I remember reading of a graveyard in some Chinese province where the traditional graveyard had completely filled up because the dead were being buried with real consumer goods like colour tvs and dish washers.

Not as much of a problem as South Africa, though, where gangsters like to be buried at the wheel a real Mercedes, but preferably with two or three fellow travellers sitting beside them shot at random on street corners. Company as they drive through the afterlife.

Well when I die, bury me in straight laced shoes,
A black coat and a Stetson hat!
Put a $20 gold piece on my watch chain,
So the boys'll know I died standing pat!

Also, can I just say that Mr Hussain's business acumen is admirable, and if there were more owner-managers around with that level of imagination, the Pakistani economy would leave us all in the dust. Or at least catch up a bit.

OTOH (Funny that I'd actually remembered that as being a real story).

Many thanks Barry, our man in Rego Park, NY.

Good grief, really? Very Egyptian of them.
