Men use pitambar (a turmeric yellow or orange color waist cloth), a special dhoti while performing rituals. Pitambar and Uparana (small shela draped over shoulders) are considered a must-have attire while performing any ritual. This is still practiced in most Brahmin families and other orthodox Hindu families.
