Gatari Amavasya = Ashad amavasya = no moon day of Ashad mass (month)
It’s party time again …
One of my college (non-maharastrian) asked me What is meaning of Gatari in Marathi ? & I told him that if you literally mean it translate to Gutter (check wiki for meaning) which is a rain channel along the road side, so it does not mean that you drink much & fall in Gutter ! ha ! ha !! ….
But practically means you have to eat non-veg, drink & enjoy, because After this day you will not eat non-veg for 1 month to 4 months (different people believe differently & do not eat non-veg food for 1 to 4 months).
In my opinion this Tradition is made by ancestors since next months are not so good for heavy eating due to the season, the stomach being working at low efficiency due to rainy season & one should not eat too much heavy food, so to take care of health this rule must have been established !
Also the next month “Shravan” is an auspicious month & many puja’s will take place during this month, so now it is Beginning of month of festivals.
