Tusu Festival a folk festival held on the last day of the month of Paus, based on popular beliefs as well as rituals associated with harvesting. Tusu is imagined as a young girl, and is worshipped by songs improvised by womenfolk. At the end of the festivities the immersion of the image of Tusu is done vividly and with songs which have a melancholic ring. Rural fairs are organised at the time when the festival is held.
