The fairs connected with local deities, the Kahika fair of the Kulu valley
is an important one. This is celebrated for three days and there are a
lot of interesting folk tales in the area connected with it. It is said
that there was a character known as 'Nada' who defied the Brahmanical
priests and gods and evolved along with his wife their own sacrificial
Yagnas to placate the local deities. People in the area hold the 'Nada'
couple in high esteem and perform a ritual enactment of the death and
resurrection of the husband.
