Well burying is, currently much greener. After all there is a significant amount of carbon in our bodies and then ther is the material used to cremate. It does not matter what the source of the fire is (unless it's hydrogen) it will still produce CO2. There is a third option- burial at sea, also very green if you use a sail boat that is.
Oh and there is nothing wrong with coffins as long as they are made of natural material- wwood, cardboard, etc.
Sorry Mahendra burial beats cremation any day, no matter where you are from. Cultural aspects of burial are a different matter all together but our ancestors did not really take environment into consideration when designing our lifestyles.
