Hindu Dilemma

Hindus face some issues with their processes to bury those that they love. The practice that is still done today amongst the Hindu community is that they will cremate the person who has died and then immerse their ashes in water. While this seems like an easy process, it has some issues for them.

One of the customs is that they cannot return home to India with their loved one for 14 days. This means that there is a time lapse for these families where they aren’t able to get to where they need to go. While this poses a problem, there have been some things that have made this easier.

Ash Banks

In order to work through this issue of tradition and what to do with a loved one’s ashes, there was an ash bank opened up because of the idea from Yug Dadhichi Deh Dan Sanstha. The plan here is that they can leave the deceased’s ashes in the bank for up to 30 days. This will help with the two-week window issue of not returning home.

Manoj Sengar is an owner of an ash bank. He opened his first branch up in 2014. The next plan for Sengar is that he wants to open up other banks in a variety of places in order to help fill this need and keep up with this Hindu tradition.
