Unmarried girls of north-western Madhya Pradesh annually worship a legendary girl called Sanja. The ritual is associated with figures and designs made by girls on smeared portions of mud walls through the medium of cattle-dung.
In the month of Asvina, the festivities of Sanja run consecutively for sixteen days.
Everyday new designs and statistics are made and in the evening songs are recited in chorus before them.
Corresponding to the Sanja, the girls in Bundelkhand worship
Mamulia. Mamulia is represented by a green bough of a lemon tree.
The branch is adorned with a colored skirt and a wimple. Wild flowers are attached in each thorn of the branch and dry fruits and sweets are hung around it. Music is played round the branch and later it is taken to a pond for immersion.
