Kajri Navami

Kajri Navami

Kajri Navami, Kajri Navami travel, Kajri Navami of Madhya Pradesh, Fair and Festival of Madhya Pradesh, Madhya PradeshOn the ninth day of the waxing-moon fortnight of the month of Sravana, falls the Kajri festival. In the Bundelkhandi-speaking area only those women, who are blessed with sons, observe this festival.

Their worship-ritual continues till the full-moon day of the same month. This day is also recognised as Kajri Purnima and Savani. For the fisher-folk of the western coast of the country, it is an occasion for offering coconuts to the sea.

On the Sravan Shukla Navami, the women go to a particular field and bring earth from there. This is kept in leaf-cups and in these leaf-cups is sown wheat or barley. These cups are kept in the inner room of the house, devoid of air and sunrays.

In the room where these cups are kept, the floor is washed with cattle-dung and a part of the wall is also coated with the cattle-dung solution. On this part a design is made with rice-solution. Figures of a house, a child in cradle, a mongoose and a woman with a pitcher are drawn near this design.

The ladies form a procession, each carrying the leaf-cups on her head and go singing to some tank where they are immersed. On the Kajri Navami the women keep fast
