Barah Maha: Savan

The fifth month of Barah Maha is Savan. From mid-July to mid-August, there is a great relief for the agrarian societies that have spent the last few months working in the scorching heat.

How can you enjoy anything when the love of your life is not present? The pleasantry that everyone experiences are daunting to her.
