Hartalika Teej is an auspicious festival in India on which, Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva are worshipped by married women. On this festival, Married women keep fast for the whole day, without drinking anything. At night, they perform special Poojas according to the muhurat and pray for happiness and long life of their partner as well as for their marital harmony. Hartalika Teej is not to be confused with Hariyali Teej, which falls in Shravana month. They both are quite similar festivals, but they are celebrated in two different months of Hindu calendar – just exactly a month apart.
Hartalika Teej is primarily celebrated in northern and central Indian states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. I live in Chhattisgarh and I have been seeing the women around me celebrate this festival from my childhood days! Here, they call it Teeja or Hari Talika.
The festival of Rakshabandhan celebrates the bond of love between brothers and sisters. This important festival takes place on the full moon (poornima) of Shraavan month which is a very pious month in the Hindu calendar.

Different cultures celebrate Rakshabandhan in different ways, but the motive behind the festival remains the same – to share the love between siblings and make fun memories. Though I believe that this festival is not just about real brothers and sisters, it is much above blood relationships!
