Gaura Parba, the major festival of the far-west region, has begun from today, the day of Bhadra Krishna Panchami.

On the first day of the festival, women marked the beginning of the festival by soaking five types of grains in water in a copper pot.

The collection of the five grains including wheat, peas and black gram is known as Biruda in the local dialect. 

This year too, the government has announced a public holiday coming Tuesday on the main day of Gaura Parba.
