Usually, because it grows and dies and then reproduces its generation. Focus on the unique characteristics of these bamboos, which grow into one or two plants and families, intertwined and reproduce its generation. That's the reason why we use green bamboo stalk in awning function and do pooja before good deeds like marriage begin. The banana tree used for the same reason. Also, old people use the phrases(In Tamil) "Vazhaiyadi Vazhayaga Vazhga" and "Moongil pol sutram muriyamal Vazhga" to wishes the newly married couples. (Means, grow generation like a banana tree and keep relations like a bamboo tree)

When the bamboo tree dies many birds and animals eat bamboo rice and get away hungry for few days.

Man is not the exception to this, In ancient times this bamboo rice was especially collected and cooked by the tribal people. Even today in the countryside the elderly collect it and cook it. This bamboo seed looks like a grain of paddy and looks like wheat when the husk is removed. This is why it is called bamboo rice.
