“The observation of the Vrat of Norinem has great cultural significance in Hinduism, centered around the story of a mongoose that attacked and devoured a snake that was about to strike a sleeping infant.
As a symbolic gesture, Hindu women, particularly mothers, conduct Puja and fast on this day in reverence and gratitude to the mongoose for saving the baby’s life. Traditionally the fast is observed with a cooked meal of Mung Beans and Bajri Rotlas, accompanied with milk and condiments.”
