Hindu Death Ceremony

 
     
  When the people from the Hindu religion die, the people have a memorial service for the man or woman who has just died.  
     
  They will incinerate their body, then during twelve days they must eat with the family of the mar or woman who has died and they cannot eat any meat, fish or eggs. They can't drink alcoholic drinks.  
     
  One day after the death, the oldest son, or rarely another person who has been selected because that person didn't have a son, should go to the sea before the sun appears with the priest, and take the ashes and spread them out at sea.  
     
  Finally on the third day a prayer is celebrated where friends and family join in the church (Mandeer).  
     
   
     
  I wish to thank my friend Vikesh for sending me this article for the website.
