It is the ninth Myanmar month at the onset of the cool season, with misty mornings in November.

In ancient days the seasonal festival was for propitiation to nats, till it waned.

The 1300s saw the coming into vogue of a celebration in honour of the literati (Sarsodaw) at this time of the years.

It might perhaps have some connection with the day dedicated to writer, poet and playwright U Ponnya after Konbaung Period.

The first recorded celebration dedicated to the literary was found in 1944.

In the present day,it is time for presentation of National Literary Awards by the State.
