It is performed to appease the all-powerful Goddess Ka Blei Synshar for a rich bumper harvest and prosperity of the people. The festival is also called 'Ka Pomblang', meaning decapitation of goats, since they are sacrificed and offerings made to the ancestors.

Here this Dazzling doll of an attractive Meghalaya girl amazingly crafted with paper machie, is representing a group of the dancers - the young, married & unmarried girls including the children. Attired In a fascinated enchanting bright yellow golden costume., known as Jainsen heavily decorated with beautifully threaded colourful necklaces & pendants; Red Corals and Beads of varied sizes adding to the beauty of the necklace.
