A few days after
the birth of the child, the women of the family and the locality take
the mother of the child to a nearby well, where they worship water. On
their way to the well, the female procession sings in chorus in praise
of gods and goddess. This is a purely Rajasthani custom, which does not
find mention in the Vedas. Since water is scarce in Rajasthan, it is also
an object of worship.
