On this day, many Sindhis followers observe Chaliho Sahab. For 40 long days and nights they underwent customs and vigil on the bank of Sindhu River. During the Chaliho folks do not shave, nor do they wear new shoes or clothes. In the evening, they worship Varun (Vedic deity of water), sing songs and pray for salvation and solace. After 40 days of Chaaliho, the followers celebrate the occasion with festivity as 'Thanks Giving Day'.
