Chhath Puja, also known as Surya Shashthi, is an ancient Hindu Vedic festival celebrated six days after Diwali. It is one of the most popular festivals in Bihar, Jharkhand, and Uttar Pradesh. During Chhath Puja, devotees observe a challenging 36-hour fast to pay homage to Surya Dev and Chhathi Maai. They offer arghya (prasad) to seek blessings for a prosperous life, the fulfillment of wishes, the well-being of children, and support for the poor. This festival not only brings joy but also promotes family bonding. Entertainment plays a significant role in enhancing the celebrations, with devotional songs, dances, and performances being an integral part of the festivities.

Despite facing criticism from society and his family, Nirahua's sincerity and devotion earn him respect when the true reason behind his decision is revealed.
