Festival of Dhinga is on the month of Dhanteras in Indian calendar and it is celebrated with all the zeal and enthusiasm in Rajasthan, India. The celebrations are colorful, noisy, vibrant and full of fun and gaiety. Thousands of women from all over India gather at Dhinga and participate in this grand event. This is one of the most popular and important festivals in northern India and women from all the states of India gather to take part in this grand event. Festival of Dhinga is the best time for women to get even with their men.

There are various stories that tell about the origin of Festival of Dhinga. One of them tells that it was started by a king of Rajasthan who was angry by the way his wife treated his other lady maid. He went on a spree and ended up in the land of the Bikaner (Bihar) and had a great party. While being there he noticed the defenseless status of the lower castes of women. To make up for this he caused a day for celebration wherein all the women were given dowries and thus made eligible to get married.

The Goddess of wealth named Sakamya came to know of this event and spread this festival as women could then get dowries and marry well. Another legend tells that when the queen was away from her home and couldn’t attend to her husband, on this day she sent her maid to the abode of the king and requested them to bring the gifts. The gifts were then distributed among all the household women of the region. In the end, the king was so happy to see his wife and children that he bestowed them all with a noble and beautiful birthday gift – Ganwa (dowry). This festival is celebrated in most parts of Rajasthan and practiced even today by some of the upper castes of women who believe in treating their husbands like dowers.

This day is also celebrated in Gujarat and the neighboring states of Maharashtra and Gujarat. In Gujarat, as in other parts of India, the festival is celebrated on the full moon of the month Shravan. On the second day of Shravan, when the rains begin to pour the festival gets underway. Every community celebrates the festival differently but it is celebrated with great zeal by all.

The dhinga is a small sized pot which is usually made out of clay. The purpose of using dhinga is that the women cook the food on it and decorate it with colored paints. On the arrival of rains in the region, the women hold pot-alks and make their own dhingas. These dhingas are called’shersas’ and they are decorated with flowers, candles, and fruits and they are then sent to the homes of the womenfolk for cooking on the dhinga.

The women folk of the region decorate their dhingas in a special way so that it looks beautiful and attractive to the eye of the men on the other side of the dhinga. The dhingas are decorated with attractive utensils and other kitchen equipment and they are lighted and decorated with flowers and candles and they are placed in the rooms of the womenfolk so that the men of the house can take a bath on the dhinga. The women folk bring along their utensils to wash the meat of the meat they roast on the dhinga. It is believed that the meat and the utensils help to cleanse the spirits and the bad energy of the demons that had been trapped by the men.
