  1. About child birth custom

    When a child is born in a family, it is a custom to announce the birth by the wife of the family barber or senor relatives of the family. Strings of mango leaves are tied to the house doors and Swastika symbol (known as Sathia) is drawn using cow dung to declare the good news. On the 6th or 7th day of child birth, the ceremoniously dressed mother with her baby is brought out of the room by her husband’s younger brother for Sun worship. Oil massaging is done to the baby and a blue or red string tied to its waist. Then, both the mother and child are taken in a procession to the village well to perform a ceremony called Jalwa.
