Pallbearers in Ghana Pay Respects to the Dead With Celebration – The Quint

Nana Otafrija Pall-bearing Service, led by Benjamin Aidoo, is trying to transform the traditional ways in which we mourn the dead. Instead of crying over the loss at a solemn burial service, these pallbearers are trying to celebrate the lives that these people led. Aidoo started pall bearing as a means to earn money and pay his high school fee but later got drawn towards it and devised his own creative ways to make people smile at their worst. Dressed in colourful clothes, the team comes and spreads a wave of celebration by singing and dancing and creating a joyful atmosphere. While the practice started as an experiment for Aidoo, it has really picked up since more and more people are concurring with Aidoo’s beliefs.

70 Years Post Independence, This Royal Family Continues to Rule | The Quint

At the onset of India’s independence in 1947, all Rajas ruling various princely states under the British were to abandon their kingship and assimilate into the nation called ‘India’. While the monarchy died its death, the royalty of some families in Rajasthan stood the test of time and carried on through generations. One such story is of the family of Maharaja Gaj Singh of Jodhpur who owns the famous Umaid Bhawan Palace, a magnificent sandstone fort, that stands tall since 1944. Gaj Singh inherited the palace at the tender age of four after his father Hanwant Singh died in a plane crash. Even though he never formally took the title of the king, his daughter Shivranjani Rajye believes that her father considers himself a king since he has always led the people under him.
