Happy “Phool Dei Festival” in UTTARAKHAND
Happy phool dei to everyone! Phool dei is a harvest festival that takes place on the first day of the month Chaitra usually in March signifying the commencement of spring. Young girls participate in it and go to each house of the village or town carrying jaggery, flour, flowers, etc. and wish for the well-being of the household. They are given sweets and blessings in return. A pudding having flour, ghee, jaggery as its ingredients is specially prepared for this ritual. It is a symbol of man’s harmony with nature.
