As you know, about 90 percent of the villagers have overseas relatives, family members who live in western countries or the USA. They have been sending money home, much of which is used to build graves. Especially, due to the competition in the construction of the villagers, there are a lot of luxury graves costing fifty thousand US dollars for their ancestors or even for family members who have not died yet. They even built-in advance to be ready for their death.
