President Bidya Devi Bhandari has expressed her confidence that Haritalika Teej would help integrate our society and country with emotional unity.

In her message of best wishes on the occasion of Teej, 2078 President Bhandari said the festival would help deepen the bonding between daughters and maternal homes, friends, families, and relatives.

She also stressed the need to mend the showy and end the expensive practice of Teej celebration so as to preserve its cultural importance.

“Haritalika Teej has significant space in Nepali society as a cultural and religious festival. There is the public belief that the festival which is celebrated for four days would also materialize own wishes”, as per the message.

The President wished that Teej would give impetus to build a civilized, equitable and progressive society by ending all forms and manifestations of discrimination and inequalities against women.

President Bhandari called all to adhere to the health safety protocol to get protected from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
