Garshi Festival

This festival takes place from the last night of the month of Ashwin (15th October) and it ends on the morning of the first Kartik (16th October). This ceremony is observed especially by the rural peasant families of the Hindu communities. The Hindu members organise the festival in the morning by making sound with the winnowing fans, blowing conch shells and sounding ulu (a sound uttered by Hindu women by moving their tongues within their mouths on any festive occasion). At the same time they bake green tamarind in the fire made by burning the woody stalks of dry jute plants, and they eat with tamarind, and they also rub this on their body. Thus, by performing these social customs, they observe the festival.
