Abhay got his friends and their mothers to help organize various aspects of the Ratha-yatra. The children helped with decorating the cart and the mothers cooked treats to be distributed at the festival. Abhay’s Jagannatha Ratha-yatra lasted for eight consecutive days and everyone in the neighborhood joined in the celebration, chanting, playing drums and karatalas and pulling the cart.
