Tusu Festival

Tusu Festival

Ostensibly a tribal festival, the Tusu Festival is held on the last day of Pausha, and is associated with the harvesting activities of the tribal. Tusu is imagined as a young girl, and is worshipped by songs improvised by womenfolk. At the end of the festivities the immersion of the image of Tusu is done vividly and with songs which have a melancholic ring. Rural fairs are organized at the time when the festival is held.
