The Indian monsoon brings along with it the most popular festival celebrated by Hindu women in the country, which is the festival of Hartalika Teej. According to the Hindu Mythology, this festival celebrates the union and marital harmony of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva.
Hartalika Teej is celebrated on the third day of the bright half of the North Indian Lunar month. This year it will be on Friday, August 21. There are different types of Teej celebrated throughout the nation, such as Hariyali Teej, Hartalika Teej, and Kajri Teej.
Hartalika Teej falls a month after the celebration of Hariyali Teej in India. To mark the festival, married women observe a fast and pray to Parvati and Shiva for marital bliss and good health of their family.
