My first night in North India, in Delhi exactly and i have been lucky to have been invited by two parents who were celebrating the Kua Pujan, 40 days after the birth of a son.
The occasion to give a name to him, choosed in a list proposed by the priest ( after consulting the astrological context).
Muslim people do the same, i remember having been invited in Jakarta ( Java) for the same reason.
Not a really sad mood, as you can see it, and a lot of traditionnal meals.
Drumming for dance, after a street procession .
thanks again to this family.
