Kuki in our language means the wind blowing from the Northwest. Bidhai mean squid. Kukiaw Bidhiyal means squids of the Northwest season. During this time of the year many Bidhiyal are seen in the sea. Young children from different villages compete against each other for who will catch the most squid.
