After that, they are taken out in a procession across the village accompanied by the melody of drumbeats and lezhim (a typical Indian musical instrument made of a wooden rod and an iron chain full of metallic pieces). A big fair is also organised during Pola festival including various sports activities such as volleyball, wrestling (kusti), kabaddi, kho-kho, etc.
