Hinduism is often described as a religion of fast, feast, and festivals. Fasts most commonly known as Upvaas or Vrat kept on particular days.

According to Hindu tradition people keep fast to please God, by controlling and curbing their desires. They refrain themselves from food or water. They pray according to the way given in Katha of that particular God.

Katha is one of the oldest ways of telling religious stories from generations after generations. Professional storytellers wrote most of them. Many Hindus believe that many Kathas were directly told by Gods themselves or written by professional storytellers. They have compiled kathas in Hindu religious texts, such as the Puranas, Ramayana, Mahatmaya, Saptvar katha and various other Hindu epics. 

There are three ways of telling Katha prevalent in India

Purana-Pravachana

Kathakalakshepa

Kathakalakshepa is way of telling religious stories through music that are mostly composed in languages like Sanskrit, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu, Kannada, and Hindi. The storyteller, usually proficient in classical music, interspaced the main story with music, dance.

Folk traditions

The folk stories were told accompanied by a stringed instrument resembling a bow. The stories chosen are heroic ballads commonly known in the villages and urban areas.
