Hariyali Teej August 2021
The third day of the Shukla Paksha of the Shravan month is called Hariyali Teej or Shravani Teej. As per the English Calendar, the festival befalls in the month of July or August. The Teej festival commemorates the women and their spirit of producing offsprings. As the season of Monsoon commences, Mother Earth is covered with green-hued foliage and fragrant flora all around, the women dance and swing their way to zeal and celebration of their abundant life.
The day is celebrated around the country by organizing cultural fairs and processions of the Goddess Parvati, blessing her devotees as she goes by the town. The married women have special importance for this festival in their lives, as this festival represents fertility, beauty, and charm of the mutual love and affection, as envisaged in the marital bond of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.
