Chawmos festival

2nd day late at night Draikot burning baskets

After all the events of Sarazari, boys and girls gather again separately late at night when the whole village is asleep. The two groups will burn worn-out baskets respectively which had been collected for this day.
After singing for some time, embers of the long branch that had been brought down from the mountain and which had been burnt with the baskets by the boys are thrown to the girls' side . Then the boys will come dashing to the girls' side and a sexual dance "chutak" starts. Song and dance will continue until dawn.
