The families open the coffins and let the bodies dry for sometime.

After that, they wash, groom and dress up the mummies in new fancy clothes and take them for a walk through the village in straight lines in much zombie-like fashion.

All this is done while smiling from ear-to-ear because crying and mourning is prohibited.

‘It is our way of respecting the dead. There is no mourning. It is a moment of joy for us because we reunite with our dead relatives.
‘We try to honour them and in return get their blessings for good harvest,’ said one of the villagers.

After the walk, the villagers sacrifice buffaloes and pigs as an offering for the dead’s free walk to heaven.

The bizarre tradition had started centuries ago when an animal hunter had found a decaying corpse but dressed him in his shirt and gave him a proper burial. He believed after the burial he was blessed with good fortune.
