Then, on the full-moon day women of the locality assemble at someone's place and tie rakhi to their brothers and nearest relatives, including husbands, or would be marriage partners in case of unmarried girls.

The following day the basket of wheat or barley seedlings are taken out in procession to a river side to sink their contents, except the green shoots which they allocate among themselves in the name of Malhana Devi. On way to the river they sing a few songs
