Buhana is a custom prevalent within the farming communities of Himachal Pradesh
. It is also known by different names such as Hela and Jwari. This custom is a beautiful example of community feelings within a clan. Buhana is performed on the occasion of seedlings, weeding, hoeing and harvesting. All activities of this custom are performed co-operatively.
Though the tasks are being performed by the whole community for one of their brethren, a drummer stands at a raised spot and beats his drum rhythmically to which all keep time as they go about their work. After a day's work, the members take Bhatedus (thick round bread made of whole wheat flour) and other delicacies. The womenfolk, who work with the men, also sing to the beat of the drum.
