Oriya girl for friendship dating
While girls thus scatter beauty, grace and music all around, moving up and down on the swings during the festival, young men give themselves to strenuous games and good food, on the eve of the onset of the monsoons, which will not give them even a minute's respite for practically four months making them one with mud, slush and relentless showers, their spirits keep high with only the hopes of a good harvest.
As all agricultural activities remain suspended and a joyous atmosphere pervades, the young men of the village keep themselves busy in various types of country games, the most favourite being 'Kabadi'.
To celebrate the advent of monsoon, the joyous festival is arranged for three days by the villagers.
Though celebrated all over the state it is more enthusiastically observed in the districts of Cuttack, Puri and Balasore.
Songs specially meant for the festival speak of love, affection, respect, social behaviour and everything of social order that comes to the minds of the singers.
Through anonymous and composed extempore, much of these songs, through sheer beauty of diction and sentiment, has earned permanence and has gone to make the very substratum of Orissa's folk-poetry.
According to popular belief as women menstruate, which is a sign of fertility, so also Mother Earth menstruates.
During all the three consecutive days they are seen in the best of dresses and decorations, eating cakes and rich food at the houses of friends and relatives, spending long cheery hours, moving up and down on improvised swings, rending the village sky with their merry impromptu songs.
The swings are of different varieties, such as 'Ram Doli', 'Charki Doli', 'Pata Doli', 'Dandi Doli' etc.
