About Teej

Teej is a holy festival for Hindu women in India. Women both married and unmarried celebrate Teej Festival with immense devotion and faith. A 24-hours long fast is observed in which women do not even drink a drop of water to ensure well-being of her husband. Through this dedicated website on Teej Festival, Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India (SCFI), wishes to pay its tribute to the dedication of women and devotion to Goddess Parvati. The society wishes to create awareness about such an important festival of women and its celebration.

As a socially responsible manifestation, Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India endeavors to create value for the Indian society by introducing the beauty, grace and wisdom embodied in the various festivals of India, thereby preserving India's rich cultural heritage. We bring unique customs, traditions and goodness of Indian festivals to form a distinct association known as the Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India. Through this organization, we hope to form a mutual respect for and foster the common bond that various Indian festivals share.

The great diversity of Indian religious beliefs is projected through the various festivals that are celebrated in India. They arise from the innate desire of man to seek diversion from humdrum activities that help in symbolizing, reflecting and enriching social life in a specific cultural setting. SCFI seeks to conserve and promote an awareness of this rich and diversified cultural treasure amongst the citizen of this country through various expositions that focus on the tradition of excellence, conversing the famous legends, rituals, mythology and philosophy of Indian Festivals and in turn facilitating an awareness of their deeper and subtler values.
