Charak festival

Charak Puja is a Hindu folk festival, held in southern Bangladesh and West Bengal on the last day of the month of Chaitra (in Bengali calendars called Choitro). People believe that the festival will carry prosperity by eliminating the sorrow and sufferings of the previous year. This actually is a festival to satisfy "Lord Shiva".
