11 Oct Don’t Let A Fast Slow You Down
Today I welcome on my blog and share with my readers a “Guest Post” from a dear friend, she is a software engineer by profession, a mother, a wife, a daughter and a sister and wears all these hats with elan’. Please give a warm welcome to my dear friend and fellow blogger Mamta Pandit.
Today she joins us with her post, a story on the very topic of the day ‘Karva Chauth’ the festival when many women all over India fast for the long life of their husbands. A very colourful, vibrant and controversial festival. Controversial you say, because as I write this with bangles tinkling on my wrist but a full stomach while sipping my tea. Two things that don’t go together with the festival of the day!
”yes… Thanks yaar” she was sounding so low, “what is wrong, you are not sounding as excited as I thought you would be what happened?” I asked.
If you are feeling so weak now only, I am sure if you don’t eat or drink anything till evening you will get hospitalised. I mean Abhay can’t judge you on the basis of number of fasts you keep for his well-being. It’s not only about this year, it’s about all the years to come, it’s about your lifelong relationship with your new family and you can’t start it on a false note. Please face it and end it today itself, there is no point in building up expectations, instead be true to yourself and to the people around you if you want to have peaceful life, a Karwa-Chauth vrat is not going to decide or define your relationship, mutual trust and respect will….are you listening?? I replied.
