    Is my cousin brother considered eligible to be uncle to perform rituals for my kids. ? Usually in Hindu religions grandfather and uncle should perform rituals for kids right. So can my cousin brother perform rituals for my kids. ?

    Yes, my brother wasn't able to attend head shaving and ear boring for my son, so my cousin brother stepped in.

    I have seen this apply to my cousin's wedding, she doesn't have a "brother" figure, just "machans" ( she's my maternal uncles daughter, and she only has paternal aunts). Regardless, we opted to have my cousin brother to participate in all the important rituals, since they grew up together and was the closest thing to a brother to her.
