Ludhiana, August 8, 2022: Community Affairs Division Police District Ludhiana (Rural) with the support of DSP Ucci Chawla, Cultural Affairs department of CT University celebrated a festival related to the wishes of girls during the Indian month of Saawan.
Teeya’n/Teej is a festival of girls starting from Teej of the month of Saawan and lasting for the entire month. Three or four decades ago, in villages and cities, girls used to gather outside the village and share their sorrows with each other while dancing and singing . Which is now almost disappearing due to the influence of western culture.
Therefore, an effort was made by CT University and DSPb Ucci Chawla in which women Panch-Sarpanches of nearby villages participated. Prabhjot Kaur, DSP, Raikot graced the occasion as the chief guest. Thefield was decorated with Peengh to give it a pure Punjabi expression. The students of CT University and G. S. S. School, Sohian presented Gidha, Bhangra and Skit. After that, all the guests, all the CTU staff and students remembered their ancient appearance by performing Gidha in traditional manner. Their ceremony was conducted by Sarghi Kaur Barring in a charming style. And the entire event was organized under the able leadership of Dr. Sachin Sharma, Dean Student Welfare.
At the end of the function, the chief guest Prabhjot Kaur, DSP, Raikot, DSP, Jagraon, Ucci Chawla and Registrar CT University, Sarbpreet Singh honored the meritorious students of Government Senior Secondary School, Sohian.
DSP, Prabhjot Kaur expressed happiness about the festival and said that in the past, girls used to meet their estranged friends on the occasion of teeya’n/teej. Today, technological progress keeps us connected through phones, so fairs have become less frequent. But sitting next to each other, laughing and dancing is essential for today's deteriorating health
