Sama-Chakeva, the ten-days of festivity, has begun amongst the Maithali communities from today.

In the festival that celebrates brother-sister relationship, womenfolk submerge the clay idols of Sama-Chakeva in the pond or river or in the recently-ploughed land, preferably in the woods, on the eleventh day of full moon to mark the start of the festival.

Celebrated in various districts across Terai such as Mahottari, Sarlahi, Siraha, Dhanusha, Saptari and Parsa, the festival is also observed with verve in many bordering towns in India.
