On Teej, women pray to Goddess Parvati for well-being of their husbands, children and family members.

The event was initiated by the Co-Chairperson of CT Group of Institutions, Parminder Kaur Channi. The place was decorated with flowers, colours and ‘bandhani’ duppatas so as to get the feeling of the festival. Along with the decoration, there were ‘mehandi’ counters, tarot card reading, ‘rakhis’, dress materials, jewellery and clothes.

In this event, three young girls were also selected as Miss Teej – Kirandeep Kaur was crowned with this title while Neha was runner-up. In paranda Tying competition Abhilasha won the title. 

The festive mood continued with traditional music and “Dholak” which made everybody tap to the beats. The function included cultural events like group dance by the students.
