Nakkataiya

 

Nakkataiya (cutting the nose) is also a Part of Ram Lila. It is celebrated in the evening of 4th day of dark fortnight of Kartika (October-November) month. This is the episode of Ram Lila when the Ravan’s Sister Surfanaka tries to influence to Lakshaman to marry her but Lakshaman cuts her nose. This was the reason of abducting the Sita by Ravan. The Nakkataiya of Chetganj is most popular.
