    Attending one’s own death ritual to keep tradition alive: Meet the Kapadans of Kasaragod



    Once in 12 years, a festival is conducted in the Nettanige temple, and the main ritual is the entry of two men into the Jambri cave.

    Kasaragod at the northern end of Kerala witnessed a unique temple ritual on Saturday, that takes place only once in 12 years. Two men from the Nittoni clan of Mogera, a Scheduled Caste community, have witnessed their own funeral rites alive, as part of a 400-year-old ritual.
