Feature Report:

On 12th September 2015; Saturday afternoon, the Bhutanese Legacy Youth Club (BLYC) successfully hosted the first Teej Special event in Fort Worth Texas in the Bhutanese Community Center of Fort Worth Texas. The special attractions of the event were the Teej related specialIMG_4739 songs and dances performed by Bhutanese Nepali women, Teej festival special food, costumes and musical recreations, including Bhutanese-Nepali literature, and volunteer appreciations. The event was greatly covered by the news web medias like Global Post Bhutan, White Himal, Himalaya Khabar, DC Nepal and more.

Global Post Bhutan writes, “The event was hosted in the occasion of Haritalika Teej, a Hindu festival celebrated during Shukla Paksha Tritiya of Bhadrapada month. In Hindu religion, Haritalika Teej comes one month after Hariyali Teej and most of the time celebrated one day before Ganesh Chaturthi. During Haritalika Teej women used to worship Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It has its historical and religious importance, and nowadays it has become more cultural tradition rather than religious activities among the Bhutanese, Nepalese and North Indian women” (http://globalpostinfo.us/?p=1813).
