Photographer's Note

The fortnight from Full Moon to New Moon in this particular month ...
For Hindus, its the time for ancestor worship and fulfilling their obligatory duties towards their ancestors ...which is called "TARPANA"... Tarpana is an act of remembrance, which solidifies the link between the generations. I dont know how I shall explain the meaning of Tarpana..The traditional ritual of Tarpana is complex, but its essence is simple.
The offerings(TARPANA) are said to reach all the dead relatives of the person who performs the rites.Tarpana is especially important for ancestors you knew personally.
If you loved them, you show them your love in the only way
remaining to you, by remembering them and offering part of yourself
to them as a token of your love.hope I can explain!!!!!!..
