Chhath is an ancient Hindu festival and only Vedic Festival dedicated to the Hindu Sun God, Surya and Chhathi Maiya (ancient Vedic Goddess Usha). The Chhath Puja is performed in order to thank Surya for sustaining life on earth and to request the granting of certain wishes.

This painting is a quick study of the Chhath puja which happened here in my home Guwahati, on the banks of the mighty river Brahmaputra.
