No matter how much I tried to postpone, today evening I had to do the due…oh…I hope you guessed it …tomorrow is Karwachauth…a day when we, the Indian ladies (well not all Indian ladies) stay without food and water (till we see the Moon) to please the God so that he blesses our husbands with long life.
Well, its nice and sweet till here but how do we explain that mindless shopping that goes on for days before the D day?
I find it pointless. Whether the other person like your gift or not (which they mostly don’t 😋), the things are purchased just because you have to…not because you want to!
‘Are you buying these bangles for your mother in law? You better buy the expensive ones??? A lady adviced me in the jampacked shop. I looked at her and said,‘I don’t even know if these are gonna fit or not!’
But still, you have to buy na!
She was right. 🤔
So yeah, some customs are mendatory or are made mendatory, I don’t know by whom, and for what…Is it to keep women busy in ‘this’ business or to keep them busy ‘out’ of the business. I am forced to think. 🤔
Women are busy in,
- boasting about their designer dresses which they are planning to wear;
- In advertising the glow on their faces to be natural, (which have nothing to do with spending handsome in the beauty salon).
Many actually demand pricey unusual gifts from their husband, and next day pretend as if the night surprised them with riches from its chest!!!
What did you get? the most common question.😏
he got me this! The obvious answer. 🤑
Oh it happens! Doesn’t it?
Though I am a misfit many a times, and I have my own ways but it’s not that I don’t enjoy this madness…I too am human…Once I am in, I am in.😉
But yeah, there are other reasons to like it. I like this fast because it looks more like a festival…you are a different kind of IMPORTANT. And even better when your other half too join you in. There you read it.
So my soon to be fasting ladies, I am hopeless faster compared to you. When you all have already polished your faces, or may be bodies, treated your hair, planned your full day tomorrow, I am busy writing this🤓🤓…My hands are yet to be stained with henna…I don’t even remember how am I gonna start.
I am still thinking should I get up at 4 or not? Though I have bought all those fanies, and mathies but I really don’t like to eat them, not atleast first thing in the morning! 😫😫
Let’s see how it turns out. No burden on my already exhausted brain. I’ll begin afresh tomorrow morning…
Happy Karwachuth by the way…hope you have a wonder filled day!!!!
