The ‘Sandal’ Procession

“There was another procession which was started in this fair. This idea of ‘Sandal’ procession originated with one Mr. Amir Shakkar Dalal, a Mohammeden Bhakta from Korhla. This procession is held in honour of great Muslim Saints. Sandal i.e. Chandan paste and scrappings are put in the Thali (flat dishes) with incense burning before them and carried in procession to the accompaniment of band and music through the village and then, after returning to the Masjid, the contents of the dishes are thrown on the ‘Nimbar’ (niche) and walls of the Masjid by hand. This work was managed by Mr. Amir Shakkar for the first three years, and then afterwards, by his wife.

So, on the same day, the two processions, the ‘Flags’ by the Hindus and ‘Sandal’ by the Muslims, went on side by side, and are still going on without any problem.”
