This austerity is related with the worship of lord Kartikeya and is observed in the bright half of the Hindu month-pausha. On the sixth day of this month, a devotee is expected to live on nothing else but fruits. Lord Kartikeya is also known by several other names- Shadanan, Senani, Kritikasut, Kumar, Skand, etc. The austerity concludes by feeding the brahmins at the year end and  making  donations  to  them.  A  devotee  who  observes  this  austerity  gets  all  his  wishes fulfilled.
