One of the most famous and widely celebrated festivals of Indian Culture is Teej, we all hear our elders saying that whoever worships Parvati on this day, is fortunate enough to get his/her desires fulfilled by her blessings. The festival celebrates the coming together of Lord Shiva and Parvati after an era of separation. It is the perfect celebration of love, specially for women out there – both single and married in the month of July / August.
The day is celebrated with parents of married women sending Sinjara to their daughters, which is a gift pack that includes bindi, vermilion, mehandi or henna, bangles, ghevar (that perfect mouth watering special Rajasthani Sweet that is inevitably the highlight of teej and our personal favorite :P) and lahariya (a multi-coloured sari). After accepting those gifts sent by her parents, the married ladies adorn themselves with henna, jewels, wear lahariya sari and take delight in the celebrations of this auspicious festival of Teej.
