Celebrating Saune Sankranti festival, ‘throwing Burning woods and throwing Scabies’

Kathmandu: The Saune Sankranti festival (1st of Shrwan Month), which is celebrated every year on the July according to the solar month, is being celebrated all over the country today, Friday, with baths, donations and gathering of relatives. There is an ancient tradition of celebrating ‘Saune Sankranti’ on the first day when the Sun enters Cancer after completing Gemini.

Since the sun has been moving south since July, the southward movement starts from today. The days of Uttarayan starting on January and Dakshinayan starting on July are specially celebrated. Since most Nepalis are engaged in farming, they are engaged in agriculture throughout the month of July. In that process, lotus was thrown to cure skin diseases caused by mud. Ram Chandra Gautam said.
