Shrawan Sankrati Festival

Date: 2014-07-172014-07-17

On the day people perform a ritual of Luto Phalne in the evening to ward off the disease of scabies and the itching it causes.
They burn some wood and a plant called Tite Pati and throw them away shouting “take away scabies” (Luto Laija- anikal jau, sagal aau, ramro hos, bikash hos :) etc.)

Shrawan Sankranti is a festival observed in Nepal on the first of month Shrawan. On the day families invite their daughters, sisters for a special feast in the family. The festival, which symbolizes entertainment-style of labourious farming life, is actually a merry making exercise after the busy period of paddy plantation. It offers people relaxation after days of hard work in paddy fields. Shrawan Sankranti is the first day of the month of Shrawan. Revelers have fun by feasting on a variety of festival food.
