I heard about a religious festival in Jainism called Paryushan . It is a very stringently followed festival by the Jains. Can someone please share any details about the worship and norms of this festival?

On this day they also observe a unique custom where they ask every individual they may have offended during the year for forgiveness. Old quarrels are forgotten and friendships and relationships renewed as they fold their hands and ask for Micchamidukadam or forgiveness.

In Shvetambaras sect, it is an 8-day festival which concludes on Bhadrapada Shukla Chaturthi when the last day is known as Samvatsari Pratikramana or Samvatsari. In the Digambaras sect, it is celebrated for a span of 10 days beginning from Paryushana or Bhadrapada Shukla panchami when dashalakshana vrata is performed.
