India : Customized My Stamp and Special Cover on Chhath Festival

It is a four-day festival mostly celebrated by people from Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and Bihar. As per the Hindu tradition, devotees worship the Sun God to express gratitude and seek their blessings. Along with the Sun God, people also make offerings to Chhath Maiya, commonly known as Usha, the wife of the Sun God. According to Vedic astrology, Chhathi Maiya or Chhathi Mata protects the offspring and provides longevity to them. Many people observe the ritualistic Chhath fast -they consume only one whole vegetarian meal in the day. In the last few years, Chhath Puja has got a special significance as a folk festival.
