Bihar Fair and Festival
Joor Sital

On the second day of chait,there is a festival, called the Joor Sital. The people bathe in water drawn the previous night and eat food cooked at that time, after worshiping Sitla Debi, the goddess of small-pox. Then from morning till noon all classes, rich and poor, cover themselves with mud, and shower it on all whom they meet. No one is free from this mud bath.
