Regarded as a younger sibling of the Bada Dashain, this festival is celebrated for two days, in the Chaitra Shukla Ashtami and Nawami tithi, according to the Nepali Calendar. The day of Ashtami is known as Chaite Dashain (not the day of Dashain, to be precise, and it’s confusing), and the day of Nawami is known as Ram Navami.The reason for the Ashtami to be celebrated as Chaite Dashain is because this day is considered to be exactly half a year, i.e. six months after the Maha-ashtami.This festival is usually the last festival of the calendar year. This festival is also known as Chaitra-Ashtami, or Sano Dashain in most of the places around Nepal. Similar to the greater Dashain, this festival also symbolizes the victory of good over evil.
