What is Teej? Teej is the most popular festival of Hindu women celebrated for abiding happy married life. A typical “Teej” is when a wife fasts a day for a long life of her husband, but Teej now is more than just a day of fasting. Married and single women of the Hindu culture gather and dance to Nepali Teej songs wearing red-green sarees with gorgeous jewelries. Along with dancing comes puja, where a priest delivers the script and women perform rituals while praying to Lord Shiva.
On this day, BCAP’s women organize an event where they all come together to celebrate their life of being wonderful women that they are.
