Gajan and Charak stand unique in the scenario of Bengal festivals and in today’s modern age.  Hindus celebrate the festival mainly on the last two days of the month of Chaitra, just before Bengali New Year. Gajan celebration is performed by the devotees signifying marriages of the male forces of Shiva, Nil or Dharmaraj with their respective consorts. One way it signifies the union of the forces of sun and earth.
