There was a rich merchant and had the 6 son and they set sail in a ship for trade, leaving the youngest brother at home.When they returned they saw to their wives danced in the 'Karma' festival, while the youngest brother was playing on the drum.They repented for their folly of driving out the goddess of wealth along with their wives.

 

They went in search of the God of fortune with their wives and met a milkman on the way. The latter requested them to ascertain from the God why the number of his cows was fast decreasing.

 

When they go forward they saw a strange man bearing on his head a piece of broken earthen pot with fire burning in it, and another man carrying a husking peddle on the shoulder.

 

After they was met another ment who shivering in the suffering of these persons from the God and the means of getting free from them.

 

The God after due worship was kind to them and on return they found that their house was filled with gold and jewels.

 

Festival Celebration
On this day people go the forest accompanied by groups of drummers and cut one or more branches of Karama tree.Branches are mostly carried by unmarried young girls. After the branches are brought to the village and planted in the centre of a ground, which is plastered with cow-dung and decorated with flowers.

 

Then the tribal-priest known as 'Jhankar' or 'Dehuri' offers germinated grams and liquor in propitiation to the deity who grants wealth and children. A fowl is also killed and the blood is offered to the branch. Then they performed the"Karama Puja".
