Could you please explain more about the ekan or othan what exactly is done on that day .I have seen the brahmin makes his own food and eats and goes away and no one is supposed to see him ...Just curious to know what exactly it is .different people say different things about it .they make a doll of rice simulating the dead person and ask the brahmin to sit in front of it and chant mantra's as "pretha" and switch off the lamp by blowing it off .... please let me know what exactly is done and why is it for ?and why only karta's are allowed to see this ?also when the 4 + 1 ( vishnu, viswadevar,pitrus and pretham) other leaf i do not remember people eat why no one is allowed to see
