January 11th, 2019
Ahoi Ashtami 2018: The celebration season is in progress, and this is the time of the year when relatively every day is a brilliant day. Navratri, Durga Puja, and Dussehra just got over, Sharad Purnima was praised on Tuesday, Karwa Chauth is days away, and Diwali isn't far. Four days after Karwa Chauth, and around eight days before Diwali, comes another Hindu celebration that is eagerly expected in North India. Ahoi Ashtami, which implies the strength of a mother's prayer, will be praised on the last day of this current month.
Like in Karwa Chauth, a strict fast is seen on Ahoi Ashtami as well. The celebration, also called Ahoi Aathe, is predominantly celebrated by the Banya-Marwari people group.
