Bihar Fair and Festival

On the day between the 15th of Chait and the 15th of Baisakh (about the 15th of April) when the sun enters the sign of the Ram , it is customary to feed Brahmans with sattu (ground parched barley),tikorha (immature mangoes), and water, and to give alms and even take bath in Ganga river. This feast is called the satuain or satuani. In South Bihar this festival is held on the last day of Chait, i.e., the last day of the Bengali year.
