The village people believe that if a person steals anything or does anything dishonest he faces a `Sade Saati` a period of seven-and-a-half years of bad luck. Something bad happens in the family like court cases accidents deaths or losses in business.

Lord Shani is believed to be manifested in the planet Saturn, is considered so mighty that his shrine cannot be kept under a shelter and he will not let thieves in the village of open homes go unpunished.
