Sama Chakewa festival observed as a symbol of love between brothers and sisters has started today in Mithilanchal. This festival starts today from Panchami and will last for 10 days. For ten days, the women of Mithilanchal wish for the longevity of their brothers and play Sama Chakewa.

On this day, in the morning, the sisters sing songs in groups and play sama chakewa and pray for a long life for all the brothers in the group.

Like other festivals, this festival is considered to be a symbol of brotherly love and is considered very important for those who have brothers and sisters. During this festival, those who do not have brothers and sisters celebrate with their neighboring brothers and sisters.

According to popular belief playing Sama Chakewa will prolong the life of brothers and strengthen the relationship with sisters. This festival is becoming popular in the bordering districts of Terai such as Mahottari, Sarlahi, Siraha, Dhanusha, Saptari, Bara, and Parsa.

In Mithilanchal, the Sama Chakewa festival arrives a day before the evening prayer of the Chhath festival.
