Teej & Rishi Panchami

Teej is a festival special to women, married and single. Goddess Parvati went on a fast to attract Lord Shiva. In keeping with that tradition, married women fast for their husband’s long life, prosperity. The unmarried pray for the perfect husband. Dress in red and wearing ornaments, women light oil lamps and stay up all night. The festival culminates in Rishi Panchami two days later. On the eve of Teej, they cook all kinds of dishes and eat them at midnight, celebrate by singing and dancing. They are not supposed to eat on Teej day. more »
