The fasting is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is also undertaken by men in some regions. In morning they do Bhai Panchami puja. They make Seven brothers with seven small sticks and white cloth and a white thread to tie clothes to the stcks. And then they make one sister with a small stick and a red cloth and moli to tie it.

Rishi Panchami fast was the one such by virtue of which all sins are washed away.
