Celebration of Bhai Juntia Festival
The Bhai Juntia Festival is observed every year on Durga Astami. Getting up early on the minute hours of Nabami, they take their bath and offer worship and while returning, collect Duba Chhuan, which they present to their brothers. The married and unmarried women keep a fast throughout the day. They offer special Puja before Goddess Durga and prepare a bunch of grass of about 108 strands and a morsel of rice on Monday. They break their fast with the fruits and non vegetated food items only after the ritual is over.
It is a festival where the brothers and sisters also exchange new clothes and gifts on the occasion. The sister also puts a Jiuntia that is the thread on her hand. Hence the name Bhai or the brother and Jiuntia that is the thread are named. By preparing a bunch of 108 strands of durba grass, they pray for a 108-year-long life for their brothers.
