The word dharna means ‘to place or lay on,’ and hence ‘a pledge.’
Another custom known as dharna is that of a suppliant placing a stone on the shrine of a god or tomb of a saint.
If a woman greatly desires a child she will go to a shrine and lay a stone on it which she calls the dharna or deposit or pledge.
An Indian custom of Dharna is of similar significance, though less violent.Ethics|John Dewey and James Hayden Tufts
