Kahika Ceremonies, Mandi

        Nada' 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.
