Practices[ edit ] On the day of fasting, after taking morning bath women take a pledge, called Sankalp, to keep the fast for the well being of their children. It is also recited during Sankalp that the fasting would be without any food or the water and the fast would be broken after sighting the stars or the moon according to their family tradition. Puja preparations are finished before sunset. Women either draw the image of Goddess Ahoi on the wall using geru or embroider it on a piece of cloth and hang it on a wall. Any image of Ahoi Mata used for the puja should have Ashtha Koshthak i. The image includes along with Goddess Ahoi, the images of young children and a lion.

After this, whatever children the younger sister-in-law has, they die after seven days. After the death of seven sons in this way, he called the Pandit and asked the reason for this.
Pandit advised serving surhi cow. Surhi is pleased with the service and takes it to Sahi.

The younger daughter-in-law says that she has saved the life of her child. Garuda Phanni is happy at this and brings them to Sahi, including Surhi.
There, Sahi is pleased with the service of the younger daughter-in-law and blesses her to have seven sons and seven daughters-in-law. With the blessings of Sahi, the younger daughter-in-law is blessed with sons and they live happily ever after.
