Chamarajanagara: It is common to build a tomb after the death of a person. However, a person here built a grave 20 years ago, wishing to fulfill his last rites with his hard earned money, and not to depend on anyone. His last rites were performed there on Monday July 25.

Puttananjappa (85), a native of Nanjadevanpura Village of Chamarajanagara Taluk had built a tower style tomb in his own land
20 years ago. This old man also kept Rs. 1 lakh, Vibhuti (ash) and Kalasha for the last rites. The funeral was done utilising that money.

Puttananjappa is quite wealthy and has three sons. The family members said that he built the tomb and kept the money because of his self-esteem. Further, he also kept money for 11-day ceremony.

Puttananjappa’s wife died of Corona last year and he performed her last rites without taking money from the children. He had bought everything needed for the funeral.

His son Gaudike Nagesh said that his father’s health had deteriorated for the last 12 days and he had stopped speaking for last 5 days. His father passed away on Sunday evening and added that the last rites are being performed with the money he saved and he will be rested at the tomb built by him.
