    Gatari is a popular ritual and is a celebration of joy and happiness. On this day people indulge in non-vegetarian food and alcohol with friends and family as many will observe fast during Shravan month, which begins from the next day of Amavasya. During the holy month of Shravan, people strictly abstain from drinking alcohol and non-vegetarian food. This is because, during this period when the monsoon will be at its peak, the stomach is said to be most susceptible to digestion problem.
