    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.
