Tor Makhy Mama in Pashtun’s Mythology

In the Pashtun’s Mythology, When there is no rain for very long, Children start a door to door drive, One (or more) of them color their faces through charcoal, and they knock the doors of the villagers, when the door open they collectively shout,

“Tor Makhy Mama Jari
Pa Makh sapera ghwari
Yo moty oro ghwari”

[Translation: Blacked Face uncle is weeping, want a slap on his face, and want some flour]

The Host often pour water on children and gave them some flour, When children collect a good amount of flour, They prepare halwa of it and start believing that now there must be rain.
