First Teej

    Pin It

It was my first Teej today. Teej is a fasting festival for Hindu women.

It takes place in 3rd day of Shukla Paksha in Shraavan or Saawan month of Hindu calendar, normally falls in the month of August or early September. Dedicated to the Goddess Parvati, commemorating her union with Lord Shiva, the festival is celebrated for marital bliss, well-being of spouse and children and purification of own body and soul. The festival is a three-day-long celebration that combines sumptuous feasts as well as rigid fasting.

Don’t get confused, I did not have fast or anything. I just enjoyed the Mehandi and Swings at home. Dhinchika Chachi decorated Anvi didi’s and my hands with Henna and then we enjoyed the Swings with everyone. We could not go out as it was a bit rainy but dad took every care for us to enjoy at home only.

I really enjoyed the day.
