According to the rituals set by the ancestors of the Vadgaon village, the God of the village is to be presented with these chicks. One could spot one of those vendors selling chicks at Rs.5 each.
Once you reach the temple the chicks you have brought with you are supposedly to be tossed on to the roof of the temple!
The small chicks were being sold for Rs.5 each and last year as well the price was the same. When one goes to buy you are handed over 2 chicks for Rs.10 for want of change. Some people also offer big Chickens but their number is very less.
It normally rains on the day of the Jatra (fair) but this time it was dry and sunny and huge crowds had gathered on the occasion. The view was a complete Jatra view with vendors selling all items on the road en route the temple like toys, balloons, bindis, bangles, dishes,plates, show items and many more.
