    it is a great day with many families of rajasthan, to keep the rakhi in tact for eight day, and on ninth dayn a traditional kumari or potter woman use to bring a statue of a warrior on horse with a flag like spear in his hand. We use to tie up our rakhi on the spear and worship the earthen statue on horse. We use to call him ” GOGAJI’ It use to be small one. The kumari or potter woman was given many eatables and some corns and clothes and money.
