Some unspoken words
Some silent whispers
Some caring glances
Some subtle touches
Some and more of love entail our relation
Those eyes which speak of million promises
That heart which beats with thy name
Souls which thou bond with Ram’s blessings
For no force the strongest can break the union.
Karwa Chauth is a festival of love and emotions. It celebrates bond of respect between husband and wife. Renewing vows of love and companionship is the real essence of this fasting. I have seen couples fasting as well as holding grudges with each other. Expressing love is the real spirit of this festival. No prayer holds importance with any malice in heart. Celebrating fast out of fear that something untoward will happen to your husband does not make any sense. If you want to do it then most important is faith in lord and love in heart. Fear should not hold any place in your life.
The real reason or significance of celebrating should be to promote values, love and respect to nurture the family bond. Seeing the present scenario more is the show off and added stress. The real significance is diminishing. There is always added tussle between generations. The older is not able to bend and newer is sometimes not able to adapt, creating a lot of friction. Both need to understand the real value of customs and traditions and move together.
