Most awaited Prasad which Devotees get after Akhand Jyot, Jhulelal Darshan and Matki immersion. After keeping the fast for entire day and getting drenching in rain while standing in long queue, this Dona taste like heavenly experience.

    I am from Sindh, I am glad to see this mela of Sindhi people. I love to see all generations at a place. Long live Sindhis long live their success. We have proud that we are Sindhi, in Sindh, India or any other part of the world.
