Spiritual Leader

In every community, there is a designated spiritual leader (sadar) who is responsible for leading the ceremonies that are performed in their village. Krishna Lakshmi Prajapati is the sadar for her community; she leads all the important rituals that take place in her village, including the Swasthani festival ceremonies.
