. These processions are taken out in all the cities of the valley at different times but all for the sake of rainfall.

Majority of Nepalese even in this age greatly depend on farming for their daily food. But farming is still so much in its primitive stage that they still have to knock the heavenís door urging the Almighty to shower mercy on them with rains. The only way to free them from this worry and stay relaxed is the chariot festivals during which they pray to the rain god for the better crops. Gaijatra: Festival in Nepal

Although the cities of the valley have their own rain gods but all the chariot festivals have similar colorful cast of thousands, towering religious vehicles which could bring ruin to the entire community if they falter or collapse, bands blasting festive music, enthusiastic mass dancing in the streets, squeezing into impossible spaces while good-naturedly jostling one another.

The fun loving Nepalese celebrate these festivals with same passion and galore as they were celebrated hundreds of years ago.
