Photographer's Note

There is not a suitable world in English for Shraddha. The nearest meaning coming to my mind is Offerings.
Well what is Shraddha, and what does it mean?
Shraddha is a religious event in which people pay tribute to their ancestors and thank them for their blessings. It is a religious event in which you can show your feelings to the ancestors.
The days of shraddha are the days of remembrance and Tarpan. The meaning of shraddha in sanskrit is “Shradhaya Yata Kriyata Tat”. It means “something that is offered to our ancestors and saints, who have put so many efforts to safeguard or protect us, for our welfare and worked their whole life for us; we must pay homage and thanks them for each and everything they did for us.
