​A time for Teej at Chamkaur Sahib

On August 11, 2017
By Punjab arts Council

THE Rain Gods have been smiling on the people of Punjab, and the mood is upbeat, as nature is in all its glory and beauty. And celebrating the season of monsoon with colour, creativity, folk music, dance, laughter, jokes, beautiful traditions and customs is the Punjab Arts Council which celebrated ‘Teeyan Teej Diyan’, the third event of the unique series ‘Pind Waajan Marda’ at Chamkaur Sahib.  The series, conceptualized and created by Satinder Satti, Chairperson of the Council, is an attempt to bring people across Punjab, especially in small towns and villages, on a common platform, and give them a glimpse of our rich customs and traditions. Gracing the festivities at Chamkaur Sahib was Charanjit Singh Channi, Technical Education Minister along with his wife and chief guest of the programme. The guests of honour included SS Virdi and Sarbjeet Kaur Sohal. Artists Gurmeet Bawa,  Lachi Bawa,  Kaur B, Nisha Bhano had the large audience completely absorbed with their performances and interactions, making the evening an affair to remember. 

 

The local organising society, Punjab Kala Manch (Chamkaur Sahib) gave the space a new look and feel, creating a festive ambience with vibrant colours, flowers, swings, with women in lovely phulkaris, parandis, dressy jewellery and mehndi on their hands. Teej is a festival which welcomes the onset of the monsoon, and was traditionally a festive time for women to come back home from the homes of their husbands and let their hair down with family and friends, singing special songs associated with festival and also prepare traditional dishes like kheer, pooda, and other sweets with their mothers and sisters.

 

Pulsating with energy, the celebrations got a new feel with mehndi applying and dance competitions and for many young men and women here, the event was a chance to be re-introduced to the many traditions associated with Teej.  “The idea of organizing this festival is to connect to our roots. The need of the hour is to look back at our rich past and its many aspects Our effort is to bring to the people of cities closer to forgotten folk traditions and give performers a platform to showcase their art all across Punjab,” said Satti, adding that celebrating these Festivals helps in the preservation and promotion of our arts, with ‘Teeyan Teej Diyan’ going to other villages and towns of Punjab in the next few months.
