Kajari Purnima
 
Kajari Purnima is celebrated in central India, mainly Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand, marking a new beginning for farmers. Farmers worship the Goddess Bhagwati, the deity of prosperity, to bless them with a good crop in the new season.
Kajari Purnima preparations begin on Kajari Navami (the 9th day after Shravan Amavasya, i.e., no mood day). The rituals of the day are only performed by women who have sons. They bring soil in leaf cups and sow barley or wheat in them. This is considered auspicious. The cups are watered and worshipped for seven days in a room cleaned and washed with cow-dung, where figures of a house, a child in a cradle, a mongoose and a woman with a pitcher are compulsory to keep. On the seventh day, women end the ritual by fasting for the wellbeing of their sons and move out in a procession to immerse the soil cups in a nearby water body. Later, a feast is organized to end the seven-day ritual.
