A procession is taken out by married and unmarried girls with the images or idol of Gauri along with pots placed on their heads. They walk through along with the pots in local streets and bazaar to collect cash, sweets, and oil. This procession goes on till the last day. On the final day, traditional songs are sung about the departure of Gauri to her husband’s house. They break their pots and take the pieces of pots to well or tank.
