Chapter Summary

The melā-fair of Sūhī is of special significance, particularly to the people of Chambā town and the royal household. It commemorates the sacrifice of queen Nennā (now known as Sunainā), also Sūhī, who was the family deity of the royal household of Chambā. On this occasion, the state made dharmārth offering in kind and money to facilitate the organisation of the fair. This chapter presents details that are of the 'facility' and 'dharmārth' provided by the administration of Chambā in 1950, on behalf of the state. Since it is a document prepared by the administration of an independent Indian state, the prices are also indicated against the weighted products - provided in parenthesis.

Keywords: Chambā; dharmārth; Sūhī
