Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth-NGABEN
Grow and develop is a process in life. Every human beings are bound to experience a growth process. Plants will go through his youth before moving to the old and then died. Animals also undergo a process of growth from childhood, youth to old age and then end with death. It Similar with the human growth process. Every growth process must be ended by a death. and death is also through a process. That process may vary substantially from one region to another region, one cities with other cities, from one country to another. Each of the different beliefs and religions also has its own process. The end of a process of growth is death. Every human being will get that kind of process. In one area in my country Indonesia, namely Bali, growth and development process of ending a life marked by the NGABEN (cremation) ceremonial. Ngaben tradition is a local tradition from generation to generation that still continues to grow until now. and this is one of the ceremonies that marked the cessation of the growth process of a human life and also a preservation of Baliness local culture that still growing until now.
so, human growth and development will not be eternal but it will definitely end by death. And every nation, culture, religion and belief has its own way to celebrate the cessation of the growth process in the life of each. One of them is NGABEN.
