An ancient Sanskrit 

Uttare maansbhak-shanam, dakshine matule kanya
Meat and Fish Culinary Food, HimachalMeans that Brahmins, in the north, are allowed to take meat and the south, to marry the first maternal cousin. So, meat eating is common in hills even among high caste Brahmins.

Even the poorest enjoys dalki, prepared meat of goat, on this evening. Sacrificing goat before a village diety on fulfillment of a vow is considered, sacred here. Devotees offer head and little flesh of goat to the temple priest and carry the remains home to cook in conventional style.
