Haritalika Teej - 28/09/2015

As the September sun pounded down on the streets of Kathmandu, the  banks of the  Bagmati River glittered  with red bangles and saris and the streets saw winding lines of women dancing their way to Pashupati Nath Temple. The ladies of Camp Hope attired in red fineries and in a feisty, celebratory mood,  danced and sang  celebrating  the much loved festival Teej with great gusto and fervour. 

The chorus of the clink and soft jingle of red glass bangles and the swish of the scarlet saris brings ---to mind ---those beloved  lines of Sarojini Naidu  as she marvelled  on  rainbow tinted bangles in  temple fairs - the symbol of Hindu women.
