Namaskaram. Sir, My father has only 02 daughters (me and my younger sister) and no sons. My sister has a son. I am aware that mappilai cannot perform sharddam as they are from different family. My dad has 01 younger brother and he has a son. I want to assure them of something while they are alive so that they rest in peace in old age. Who is supposed to do the final rights for both of my parents ? I want to know according to vadakali Iyengar rights. I want to try to help them as I am aware of the consequences of not doing shraddam. Apart from self Gaya shartham, what else need to be done for final rights and yearly schedule ? As somebody else will do, I cant expect them to do every year so what is the least number of years that we need to follow. I think this problem is there now days for every one who has only daughters and no sons. your answer will be highly helpful for all of us . Thank you.

Answer: Njaathi known as the first cousins have full rights to perform the rituals. However, if your parents desire, grand son too can perform (if Upanayanam has not been performed, then through the procedure known as Kaippil – taking the dharba from the grand-son – some one on his behalf can perform the rites as if having taken a power of attorney). Your parents have the full rights to nominate some one to do the kaingaryam. If property is left by the grand parents to the grand son, then the grand son needs to perform the annual sraardham for life time! If no property is offered, then they can just perform hiraNya or aama srardham. If the husband leaves first, then the wife can perform the rites by offering Kaippil. And if wife leaves first, husband can do the kaingaryam, and continue the srardham to his wife for his life time; then the question of offering kaippil does not arise. This is common to all Srivaishnavas.
