Shraadham, is basically for the upliftment of the offsprings, according to
the shruthis, well, garuda purana, gives a different version, which is a

I remembered a joke , which a shastrigal i know told me,
he jokingly said sraddam, is not of the deceased, but of the living in the
present day....ha ha
how true and also such a pity
