The Teeyan festival by Pind Di Kuriya was recently held at Wisma Tatt Khalsa in Kuala Lumpur. Its an annual women’s festival of happiness that started last year.

Punjabi ladies came dressed up in colorful attire, sang boliyan and performed giddha performance.

Teeyan is about happiness, prosperity and well-being. It is festival for Indian women where newly married and young unmarried women gather together to celebrate the beginning of rainy season.

A very special thanks to Gurdwara Sahib Tath Khalsa committee for sponsoring the hall and food, Hasheel Sidhu for the sound system, Moghul Mahal and Havely for the gift vouchers.
