Teej-Great Festival of Hindu Women
Teej is a popular fasting festival for Hindu women. It is celebrated for 3 days. The festival falls in the month of August or early September. Through the course of this rigid fasting, Hindu women pray for marital bliss, well being of their spouse and children as well as purification of their own body and soul. All the married Hindu women dress in red clothes as it is considered as sign of good luck. They like to wear their jewelries also and celebrate this festival with singing and dancing. The songs they sing during this festival won't be heard when the festival is over. However, they can sing this in the next year's Teej festival again.
