Such is the time when u feel most connected to the spiritualism inside yourself, which is set in full motion by the sound of musical instruments, chantings of people & sandal smell from agarbatti. Its the high time, you sit, relaxed at a place & atleast ponder upon your life, this way realizing what have been done in life till now & what else is needed to be done. As mentioned in hindu mythology, Dharma, Arth, Kama, Moksha, the Dharma & Moksha feelings get supercharged boost here & this feeling can only be felt, inexplicable in itself.
