BILASPUR

Throughout the district Tuesdays are held auspicious for undertaking any work because Raja Ali Dev of Chanderi won the area on that day. Ali Dev has also been deified now and is propitiated on the first Tuesday of the month. The Bhoot or the evil spirit has to be appeased with proper homages including the sacrifice of a goat or a cock.

It is a common belief that if the cattle have an epidemic or the family is faced with some domestic troubles, if any project taken up goes awry leading to loss and there is any lingering illness in the family some evil spirit has been the cause and the malevolent spirit has to be won over. It is commonly held that evil spirits take possession of the body and have to be exorcised.

The Bilaspuri believes that Khot or vice brings in sudden illness or difficulties. By means of grains of wheat and some Kriyas (acts) an experienced man can find out which deity has been angry and the afflicted man has to take a vow to offer Puja to that particular deity. This process to find out Khot is known as Akhwan.
