Bihar Fair and Festival
Newan or Newani​

When the crops are cut, some of the new grain is taken home and eaten with certain ceremonies. This feast is known as Newan or Newani. When the grain is collected on the threshing-floor, a cake of cow dung is placed on the top of the heap to avert the evil eye . South of the Ganges, worship is also done to the village deity.
