Why such a social stigma acceptable in the Scientific age?
Today, when the scientific approach is acceptable, it is a shame to organize and to attend Mrityu Bhoj (death feast). Sometimes it seems that the educated society is also ignorant. It is beyond comprehension how this filth flourished in developing society. Animals also express disconnection when one of their companions die, but human society accepts banquet when a person dies. Feast on a happy occasion may be thought of, but feast at death time appears a shameful tradition.
Even educated people follow this, what about illiterate?
There are different ways of this Mrityu Bhoj (death feast). Depending upon local traditions, such feasts are organized starting from day 1 to day 13 from death. When an educated person follows such practices, what would an illiterate person do? An educated person behind an illiterate person stands up to raise arguments in favor of the evil practice.
Why the government and intellectuals held silence?
Society is sensitive to many social evils but indifferent to traditions. To prevent the Mrityu Bhoj (death feast), the Prevention of Mrityu Bhoj Act 1960 has been enacted in the state of Rajasthan. The act has a clear provision of punishment and fine.
The officers and the politicians observe silence and the law is not being strictly adhered to. Even at the time the leaders and officers themselves participate in such Mrityu Bhoj (death feast).
