               Bhadra Tithi is an Hindu astrological time period. According to Astrological Mythology, Bhadra is said to be daughter of Sun and sister of Shani. According to Bhavishya Puran, Brahma blessed Bhadra that whoever would start new work on Bhadra time that person would get hurdle in the work.
  There is a Ravain (West Uttarkashi and North-West Dehradun region) folktale about not to start any work in Bhadra Tithi.
 One day, a village chief was going to another village for judgment. On that day, there was Bhadra Tithi. Village Chief was aware about Bhadra Tithi on that day. However, the village chief did not pay attention. On the way for another village, village chief encountered with a Bear. The Bear attacked on the face of village chief. The village chief cried and called for help. There were wood workers nearby jungle. They came and saved the village chief. The Bear wounded the village chief very badly.
 Now, the village chief experienced the importance of Bhadra Tithi. He vowed not to initiate any work on Bhadra Tithi.
