Today’s Holiday:
Pitra Visarjan Amavasya

During this two-week festival in India, no male family member is allowed to shave, nor is it permissible to cut hair, pare nails, or wear new clothes. It is a time for honoring ancestors by making special offerings of food and water, especially khir, or rice boiled in milk.
