The socio-religious life of Hindus is very rich in festivals. Thirteen Festivals in Twelve Months is a common saying in India. Each festival has however acquired some local colour and form. There is no fundamental difference between folk festivals and festivals of culture, expect differences in form and features.
The common folk take the initiative and give expression to their natural tendencies capacities, their ideas and sentiments, can be counted as folk festivals. Relaxation and self-expression without restraint is a common tendency of human consciousness. A pair of dolls were generally taken home during Sabitri Ambasha. On that day (new moon day), women observe fast for the well being of their spouse and children.
