  3. It is not only for son. But on nahai khai day we females also pay homage to our "pitarains"(ie all mother in laws who are dead are collectively called pitarains).It is belived that on this day their soul visit us for food .Hence on nahai khai day food is offered in their name first and then taken as prasad.on this day preferably an old lady is invited on lunch.It is a ritual to be done only by those who have lost their mother in laws.

  32. Itis a test of love for the family and all the family members should relate them selves with it by caring for their mother ,sister friend who is under taking the fast. It is the duty of others to take care and keep them happy and fulfill their desires not only today but all the time and remember their effort in keeping the Nirjal Vrath for the well being of the family.
