Kahika Dance

Kahika Dance is performed on the occasion of Kahika Fair in Himachal Pradesh. The chief characters of this dance are Naurh and Naurhan (husband and wife), in which Naurh is made unconscious for one or two hour by the divine power.

This dance is originally performed by Naurhan in front of the palanquin of the local deity. It depicts that she has offered her husband to the deity, and in case if he does not return to consciousness, she will take away all the belongings of the deity.
