Teej: A Nepalese Festival [#permalink] New post 28 Aug 2006, 11:53
Teej is a Nepali 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.

yes vivek, many festivals are common to indians and nepalese people. just slightly different name. for ex:

hindi == nepali
Diwali = Deepawali
Tauhar = Tihar
Ganesh festival = Ganesh puja
Holi = Holi/Fagu Purnima
Dashahara = Dashain
Rakhi = Raksha Bandhan

and so on............

Nice thread Prof. and nice pics.
Good to hear that we share so many cultural similarities.
BTW, the ladies in the first pic are looking rather tensed. :lol:
Maybe the effect of hunger after the grueling fast. :wink:
