The sound of the cowbell tied around the cow’s neck is silent.

The scene of the new daughter-in-law wearing a veil on her head and carrying a sanjwati to the chaura is no longer seen. In the morning, water does not fall in the danda, everything is lost in the cycle of time.

In the month of Kartik, the culture of Bhagavat Parayan, Rahas and Kartik Melana is carried on by the ancestors.
