Nuakhai Festival 2023 Date & HD Photo

An agricultural festival in India called Nuakhai or Navakhai is mostly celebrated by the populations of western Odisha and southern Chhattisgarh. It is customary in Nuakhai to welcome the new rice harvest. This holiday is observed one day after Ganesh Chaturthi, a harvest celebration, to welcome the new rice crop. Food is khai, and nua signifies new.

How it is celebrated

People celebrate the first rice of the harvest with their families and revere the newly harvested harvests. Nuakhai Juhar is a time to give gifts to loved ones, wish them well on their special day, and gather as a family to represent harmony.

Other names for Nuakhai are Nuakhai Parab and Nuakhai Bhetghat. In Chhattisgarh, it is also known as Navakhai Parv. The name indicates that the farmers are in possession of just harvested rice because nua means new and khai means food. The celebration, which takes place the day following Ganesh Chaturthi, is viewed as a new sign of hope. For farmers and the agricultural community, it is very important. The celebration known as lagan is observed at a specific time of day. For this festival, Aersaa Pithaa is prepared. People recall their local god or goddess before having their nua when the lagan arrives.
