2019 Shitala Satam

Shitala Satam is significant day in Gujarati Calendar. It is dedicated to Goddess Shitala. It is believed that Goddess Shitala protects her devotees and their families from measles and chickenpox. Hence, families in Gujarat observe rituals of Shitala Satam to seek blessing of Goddess Shitala.

The most significant ritual, which is followed on the day of Shitala Satam, is that no fresh food is cooked in the family. The food which is consumed on the day of Shitala Satam should be cold and stale. Hence most Gujarati families prepare special food on the previous day which is popularly known as Randhan Chhath.

The concept of Shitala Satam is same as that of Basoda and Sheetala Ashtami which is observed just after Holi in North Indian states. Shitala Satam is also spelled as Sheetala Satam and Sitala Satam.
