PATNA: A man from the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh threw a grand feast to the villagers after his buffalo died.
The bizarre incident took place at Bhitari village under Datiya district in Madhya Pradesh.
Local media today reported Suresh Kumar Kirar came in a state of grief after his buffalo which he treated as a family member died last month.
A grieving Kirar then not only collected its bones and then flowed it in the local river but also invited around 1,000 villager for a feast to mark its ‘mrityu bhoj’ (feast after death) to let its soul rest in peace. The feast was arranged on March 2.
The cattle owner spent over Rs 50,000 on arranging this feast and printing invitation cards for the function, as per reports.
Reports said the buffalo was with the family for the past over two decades during which she produced 22 calves—20 of them being females.
The buffalo itself was giving 6 kg of milk daily since he bought it 22 years back.
