Before his death, he shares with his son Eesy, memories about the burial of his father and in turn, his own desire to be buried decently. Eesy readily promises him a grand burial. After Vavachan’s sudden and shocking departure, Eesy earnestly arranges for his father’s funeral; he wants it to be performed with due respect, with all the usual rituals, colorful paraphernalia and celebrations that go with it.
