On this festival, the girls worship Maa Mangala (Odia: ମା' ମଙ୍ଗଳା) to protect their brothers. This loosely translates to that "Goddess Khudurukuni can fulfill all your wishes".

The book is a story of a young girl named Tapoi who was ill-treated by her sisters-in-laws (except the youngest one) after her brothers traveled far for business. She started worshiping Maa Mangala and got out of all the troubles when her brothers came back.
