Theme – “Chatti and barahe – 6th and 12th day Hindu childbirth ceremonies”
Among all ethnic groups in Trinidad and Tobago, Hindus perform the most intricate childbirth ceremony. Some families prefer to observe the birth celebration on the twelfth day, in which case it is known as a barahe and is of greater magnitude than the sixth-day celebration. More information can be found here.
