He said that the festivals in India have both literal and scientific significance, with all festivals based on scientific principles. One such festival is Sheetal, which has been practiced in Mithilanchal since ancient times.

Every year on April 14th, the people of Mithila celebrate the Sheetal festival with great enthusiasm, as it marks the start of the new year for those who are rooted in Mithila.

On this day, the members of the Maithili community cool down the environment by pouring water on trees and plants, he said.
