A Day in Rohtan Village of Jubbal

Pictures from my First Visit

Someone told me about a village fair called Bishu that happens in Rohtan village of Jubbal. What I didn’t know was that it happens in a lot more villages around Rohru and Jubbal around these same dates. I’ll be more careful next year.

I have a lot of relatives from this village so finding dates wasn’t difficult. The only issue was the shortage of time. I couldn’t see the entire ceremony and the few hours I had, were spent talking to people to understand Bishu prayer and visiting my relatives. I’ll visit again next year to document the whole thing. Bishu generally involved a prayer followed by a dance called Nati.

If you have any more information, do write it down in the comments below.
