Govatsa Dwadashi 2021 is a Hindu festival that is observed a day prior to Dhanteras. On this day, the worship of cows and calves is performed. It is a unique celebration as this day devotees pay their thanks and gratitude to the Holy Cow for their contribution in the sustenance of human life. Also known as Nandini Vrat, this day is observed on Hindu tithi of Dwadashi (Krishna Paksha) in the Hindu month of Ashwin. This day is also celebrated as Vasu Baras in Maharashtra and marks the first day of the festival of lights, Diwali.


The festival of Govatsa Dwadashi 2021 pays its tribute to 'Nandini', the divine cow.
