Dussehra

 
The Dussehra festival is celebrated in a big way. Big tall effigies of Ravana, Kumbkharna and Meghnad are burnt at a large number of places. During the Nauratas Ram-Lila is is organised at innumerable places in the state. On Kartik on the fourth day falls Karva Chauth. On this day married women observe a fast and pray for the long life of their husbands. Sometimes unmarried girls observe this fast and pray for their husbands-to-be. This is the mother-in-laws day because it is customary on this day for the daughter-in-law to present her offerings (Baya) in the form of money and eatables. On the eleventh lunar day in this month the festival of Devuthan (waking up the deities) is celebrated. Metal plates are taken in order to awaken the deities who are supposed to go to sleep between the summer harvest and the first ploughing after the start of the autumnal rains.
