This festival is believed to spot the beginning of monsoon season while on the other side according to religious beliefs; it was on this day when Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati reunited with each other after hundreds of years.

Womenfolk this day applies mehandi (Henna) on their hands and by observing fast, prays for the long life and well-being of their husband which basically provides them a much needed break from their daily household drudgery. Interesting, No? πŸ˜‰

Here are some of the snapshots featuring this festival, most of which are clicked by me πŸ˜€
