Even if it is weird to hear, it is true.They believe that by doing like this, the strength, love and affection of dead people will stay forever with them.If they leave the ashes after burning the dead body without doing likewise...With the reason that the ghost will not rest in peace and haunt them creating some problems...Likewise, they have been consuming the ashes of dead people mixing with banana soup.
