or 'Beda' in 'Bhunda' ceremonies had the likelihood of death. This
hazard has perhaps given birth to 'Nada's death and his being aliva
again. The people carry the pyre and this reminds us about the old
custom which sometimes took the life of the daring 'Nada'. A 'Nada'
surviving this ordeal was given royal reception and subsistence and
comfortable living for the rest of the intervening period of 'Bhunda'
ceremony. All these hazards and dangerous feats remind us of gladiators
in Rome and bull-fighting in Spain.
