This is just an excerpt of the larger Garuda Purana, which also deals with gemology and other natural sciences. However, unless you are interested in the history of that sort of thing, this excerpt is the most interesting. It deals with funeral rites, and the mythology of the Hindu underworld, or "hell." The realm of Yama, the God of Death and Justice. The hells are described in excruciating detail.

First, you must cross over the river Vaitrani, It is 800 miles wide, and flows with blood and pus.

I got an answer to my unusual question:
Q: Why there are a huge flock of pigeons in India?
A: Who speaks ill of caste and order is born a pigeon!

On a funny note, it's like a hard science fiction book.
