The jhota fight is completely safe as there are many people holding the buffaloes so that they don’t fight in real. According to the local villagers, they organize the buffalo fight to pass the tradition and to give a boost to the tourism of the place.
As, during fairs and festivals people from other parts of the state visit Baychari and the small village gets some notice. To keep the spirits high among the villagers and keep the culture alive this amazing fair is organized and it was a pleasure to watch an event full of thrill and excitement.
