Images taken from the Tee-Yan Festival.
The festival is celebrated from the third day of the lunar month of Sawan on the bright half, up to the full moon of sawan, by women. Married women go to their maternal house to participate in the festivities. In the past, it was traditional for women to spend the whole month of Sawan with their parents. Whether or not a married woman goes to her parents, brothers take a gift set to their sisters called a ‘sandhara’. A sandhara includes a Punjabi Suit/sari, laddoo, bangles, mehndi and a swing.The festival of teeyan centres on girls and women getting together in the village green and tying swings to the trees. The festival gathers momentum in the teeyan Gidha. (source Wikipedia)
