DVD Roms -  Sā˝jhī

Director: B.S. Rawat
Duration: 30 min, 13 sec

Sā˝jhī is a folk tradition of fifteen-day ritual, performed by unmarried girls between full moon day and the dark moonless night to pay tribute to the departed ancestors during piṭr pakṣa. The practice is in vogue in many places in north and central India. Young girls create Sā˝jhī on wall with cow-dung and a variety of flowers. This is created and recreated with new motifs every evening at the twilight hour and undone in the early dawn. Sandhyā Devī is the central myth of this functional tradition. IGNCA has documented this tradition in Udaipur (Rajasthan) and Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh) under its research programme
