Dasain is the uniquely Nepali form of Navratri. Nepali festivals are tied to the seasonal agricultural cycle, reflecting the centrality of farming in many Nepali communities. Each of the nine days is full of significance and traditional observances. On Ghatasthapana, sprouted wheat grains are planted in a pot, and kept in a dark place in the household. On the tenth day of Dashami, the beautiful spring-green sprouts (called "jamara") are plucked and worn, as a sign of new growth and regeneration, along with "tikka" (the red kumkum powder) on the forehead.
