This festival is a devotion of KARAM devta, the god of power, youth and youthfulness.Karam festivals is held on the 11th day of the phases of moon in Bhadra month. The groups of young villagers go to forest and collect wood, fruits and flowers. These are necessary during the Puja of
KARAM God. During this entire period people sing and dance in groups. The entire valley seems to be dancing with the drumbeats.
This is one of the rare examples of such a essential and lively youth festival in Jharkhand's Tribal area. At the same time, the unmarried young tribal girls celebrate the Jawa festival, which has its own kind of songs and dance. This is held mainly for the expectation of good fertility and better household. The unmarried girls decorate a small basket with germinating seeds. It is believed that the worship for good germination of the grains would increase the fertility. The girls offer green melons to the Karam deity as a symbol of 'son' which reveals the primitive expectation of human being, i.e grains and children. The entire tribal area of
Jaharkhand becomes tipsy through this time.
