  2. Death- Same Ritual, DifferentCeremonies. Death is the harsh reality of life and it is next to impossible to deal with it. Whatever be the situation, death is never acceptable. But at the same time, we cannot escape from the nature’s law. Every creation has its destruction, and human beings are not an exception. Dealing with the death of your loved one is the most painful scenario of life. However, this reality will never change and all of us have to accept this with heavyhearts. A funeral is a ritual to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, to thank for the life lived and to commend the person into God's keeping. It is a ceremony for honoring, respecting, sanctifying, or remembering the life of a person who has died. There are several Funeral services such as Hindu funeral services, Asian funeral services, and Sikh funeral services. These funeral services look after the Hindu Funeral arrangements and rituals and Asian Funeral arrangements and other religionFunerals. Every religion and caste has different types of rituals performed after death. Muslims, Christians and Asians bury their dead whereas in Hindus and Sikh funerals the dead are cremated and their ashes are immersed in flowing water. Depending on culture and religion, these can involve either the destruction of the body (for example, by cremation) or its preservation (for example, by mummification orinterment). Chinese funeral has several main traditions. There are Buddhist ceremonies that last at least for 49 days. First 7 days are believed to be the most important. Prayers are said every 7 days, for 49 days. If a family of the deceased is poor, this period can be short, lasting for only 3 days. In the second tradition, the prayer ceremony is held every 10 days: The initial ceremony and three succeeding periods of 10 days until the final burial or cremation. After 100 days a final prayer ceremony is conducted, but this is optional and not as important as the initial ceremonies. The Chinese believe that those seven days after the death of a family member the soul of the departed will return to his/her home. A red plaque with a suitable inscription may be placed outside the house at this time to ensure that the soul does not get lost. On the day of the return of the soul, family members are expected to remain in their rooms. Flour or talcum powdermay bedustedon theflooroftheentrancehallofthehometodetectthevisit. In Hindu funerals the day after the cremation, the karta (head of the family) will return to the crematory and collect the ashes. Traditionally, the ashes should be immersed in the Ganga River, though other rivers are becoming acceptable substitutes. For Hindus living outside of India, there are companies that will arrange for funeral transportation of cremated remains to India and will submerge the ashes in the Ganga. The cremation of the deceased marks the beginning of the mourning period, which lasts for 13 days. One year after the death, the family will observe a memorial event called “sraddha,” which pays homage to thedeceased.

Depending on culture and religion, these can involve either the destruction of the body(for example, by cremation) or its preservation (for example, by mummification orinterment). Differing beliefs about cleanliness and the relationship between body and soul mean that a funerary practice that is deeply sacred to one culture may be absolutely taboo in another. Whena funerary ceremony is performed but the body of the deceased is not available, it is usually called a memorialservice.
