Patna: With the festival of Diwali already in the rearview mirror, Patna’ites are now gearing up for Bihar’s most revered festival Chhath that begins on October 31 with Nahai-Khai.
Some areas in Patna like Bans Ghat, Raja Bazaar, Kurji, GPO Roundabout, Kankarbagh, Thakur Bari Road, Kanti Factory Road, Bakerganj, R-Block, and Dinkar Roundabout were buzzing with vendors selling from a specific item like clay oven to a one-stop shop for all articles associated with the festival.
While clay ovens are selling anywhere from Rs. 60 to Rs. 100, five kilogram of mango woods would cost of roughly about Rs. 125. A pair of Soop, a key item in the puja, meanwhile, is selling for about Rs. 150. Daura, on the other hand, could make a dent in one’s pocket by about Rs. 200.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
