Harvest Festivals

Harvest Festivals in India

Harvest

Harvest (कटाई) is the process of gathering mature crops from the fields. Reaping (also means कटाई) is the cutting of grain or pulse for harvest typically using a scythe, sickle or reaper. The harvest marks the end of the growing season or the growing cycle for a particular crop. The social importance of this event makes it the focus of seasonal celebrations such as harvest festivals found in many religions.
