Continued from Part 1
The fire is offered “Chivra”or beaten rice, “Meva” or dry fruits, “Til-gur-revri” or sesame seeds sweet preparation and “gajak” another variety of sweetened sesame seeds. Then the fire becomes the deity of the occasion.
During the 13th and the 14th January, the sun becomes mobile towards the north. This tilt in movement changes the amount of heatness reaching the earth, particularly in the northern snow-clad areas. The people having experienced the biting cold welcome the warm sun rays by celebrating this festival.
