    They pass these three days in joyous festivity and observe customs like eating only uncooked and nourishing food especially Podapitha, do not take bath or take salt, do not walk barefooted and vow to give birth to healthy children in future. The most vivid and enjoyable memories one has of the Raja gaiety is the rope-swings on big banyan trees and the lyrical folk-songs that one listens from the nubile beauty enjoying the atmosphere.

    In cities nowadays, most of the organization are introducing so many activities to add more fun to this festival. They do some competitions for women’s participation, offering special discounts on malls for ladies, special tourism discounts by Odisha hotels for three days holiday and like this many more.
