Death, End of the Story?

To Balinese, death does not mean the end of the story for the deceased, it does not mean all the past grudges are forgotten, it also does not mean the actions of the deceased and their consequences have to be buried in oblivion. For the Balinese, the death of someone is a time for grand evaluation of all his deeds, his mistakes and merits, and the time for reciprocating all the deeds of the deceased.

January 31st, 2008

Standard packages offered to tourists wishing to visit Bali seldom cover bird watching. In fact when Connie SY Khoo and Lim Phaik Imm, suggested bird watching, travel agents invariably responded that Bali is not the place to bird-watch. In exasperation, they tailored a trip for their specific needs and returned to Malaysia fully satisfied with it - see earlier posting on White Herons of Petulu.
