Corona couldn’t stop or flush out the yearly teej celebrations. Hariyali Teej welcomes the monsoon season. The festival symbolizes the togetherness of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, the day when Lord Shiva accepted Goddess Parvati as his wife. The reason why Teej is also a symbol of love, respect & sacrifice.
