Besna ceremony is performed when a child is able to sit (approximately at 7 months of age).

The child is seated on a “Patla” (little stool) and Mava na Pendas or Boondi Ladoo or Besan Ladoo  are placed around him/her.

“Tili” is put on the forehead and garland on him/her and the usual ses is done with throwing of rice.

Cash and gifts are then given to the child by parents, grandparents and family members
