Hariyali Teej 2021: The auspicious Hindu festival of Teej, celebrated in both India and Nepal, is knocking at our door. In India, we celebrate three different Teej festivals throughout the year – Hariyali Teej, Hartalika Teej, and Karjari Teej. Hariyali Teej will be celebrated on 11th August this year. The much-anticipated monsoon festival is marked by married Hindu women who observe fasts and pray for marital bliss and happiness. The festival is believed to mark the auspicious union of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati as well as to celebrate the bountiful monsoon season. Like all Indian festivals, this, too, is incomplete without some delicious homemade mithai.
