Gangaur is one of the most important festivals of we Rajasthanis. This is picture of our Gangaur at home.
It is the celebration of spring, harvest and marital fidelity. The festival commences on the day following Holi and continues for 18 days. For a newly-wedded girl, it is binding to observe the full course of 18 days of the festival that succeeds her marriage. The unmarried women worship her for being blessed with good husband, while married women do so for the welfare, health and long life of their husbands and happy married life. We have in our home permanent image of Isar and Gauri. Without saying Minoos fast and prayers get me the long life 🙂
