In the Bainai Night the pickle must be an odd number of nine fingers, according to the tradition in the village, the occasion on this bainai event every parent requested to attach the fingers to the fingers of the prospective child after they usually finish whispering into the ears of the child daro . The whispers can last a long time, can be very short.
