Celebrations of Death in Kathmandu, Nepal
The late A.W. (Bert) van den Hoek (1951-2001) had over twenty years of research experience in South Asia, before passing away after an accident in Mumbai, India. At the time, he was conducting follow-up field research that would have led to his magnum opus, a comprehensive analysis of Newar festivals, rituals and myths, entitled The Ritual Structure of Kathmandu.
