Gregory D. Alles: Work and Play in Gamshahi. Performing the Indigenous Village in Eastern Gujarat, pp. 103-125

This article concentrates on the central ceremony, which takes place from Wednesday afternoon to roughly Thursday noon, traditionally between Divali and Holi, as determined by village leaders in consultation with a ritualist known as a badvo.
