Teej is around the corner, and preparations for this annual women’s festival have already begun. The Week asked women of different age groups how they plan to celebrate Teej this year, and what they think of the new trends in shopping, partying, and music that surround this festival.
Personally I haven’t celebrated Teej yet. But I love the way Teej creates a different environment around us. The color red comes alive with so many women wearing it in so many different styles. Not only elderly women who strictly fast on the day of Teej enjoy this festival. Teej is also a happy time for youngsters like us. I love going out shopping during this time. Roaming and searching in the market becomes all the more fun during such festivity. We don’t follow the tradition of eating dar very strictly. But Teej brings a time with it when many extended family members and friends come together and enjoy a memorable and joyous time. Till now, Teej is more of a fun festival for me. But I think I will start observing this festival more seriously as I grow older.
