The festival of Teej, also known as the Sawan festival brings with it a vibrancy, happiness and gaiety symbolic of the monsoon season. Everyone from adults to children alike, men and women indulge in celebrating this festival by way of relishing delicious sweets especially ‘ghevar’. Women do not miss the opportunity to look and feel their best by adorning beautiful ‘Lehriyas’ and intricate mehndi on their hands.
The children of The Palace School were taken to The City Palace on a field trip to get a glimpse of Teej celebrations. They were told that Teej is celebrated in Shravan –the fifth month of Hindu calendar, which is one of the most auspicious months of the year.
Girls applied mehandi on their palms and witnessed the traditional celebrations. Children also enjoyed a musical puppet show. They immersed themselves in the colours of Teej, a festival which is widely celebrated in the state of Rajasthan.
