Karva Choke?

Published by


Although not religious or ‘ritually’ traditional, I do respect Hindu culture and am very much an Indian by heart. However, I do not see myself ever doing Karva Chauth. By fasting all day and only eating when the moon comes up, I don’t see how my marriage (if I ever do get married) would be any stronger or longer. Maybe it’s our love of legends and our strong faith in the divine, but I always find it amazing how such educated Indians still fall for such superstitions.

    hey abs,isn’t it about determination, concentration, and (the universally lacking) human trait of being able to control yourself? Thought these were the underlying factors and the rest – simply populist excuses just as in the case of many other rituals…
