Here in India, sometimes when you think you need space in life, like when a loved one passes away, society doesn’t let you have it. We have rituals that include feeding strangers, having ceremonies and rights on the 4th day, the 13th day … and at age 12, Saurabh Jain encountered this when his grandmother passed away when he was with her in Gaya. His story is called Jashn, which means celebration or a festival. The story is in Hindi, but the Q&A after is in English, so stick around.
