Woman praying for her ancestors
She is praying to the fire deity to deliver offerings to the world after death where her ancestors live. Crushed or split sweets and fruit are offered and cigarettes broken into pieces are sprinkled. It is said that offerings will not be delivered if the names of the person making the offering and each ancestor are not clearly voiced.
