This fast lasts for three days. The first day is bathed, the second day is Jitiya Nirjala fast and the third day is Paran. This year Jitiya fast will be observed on Thursday, 10 September. It is very important to take care of some things while celebrating its first day as bathed Khaya. The first day of Jithiya fast i.e. the bathed Khaya should not be eaten after sunset. By doing this, the fast is broken. If the result is given to the child, then the child has to bear the bad effects when the fast is broken.
