|Me today. Dedicating 24 hours|
to my love for Sumit.
What started out as a day for soldiers who left their wives and children to go fight in war turned into a Hindu holiday of love. As this holiday is often one a woman should always be prepared for, this is my first time celebrating Karva Chauth.
Karva Chauth starts in a half an hour (or 30 minutes) here. To honor and celebrate my love for my amazing boyfriend Sumit, I will fast from sunrise to moon rise. I will not have anything to eat or drink. I will not access the internet; however, I will only talk to Sumit, family and friends if they call me via phone.
Once the fasting is complete, I will offer water to the moon. I will also have breakfast with the moon and enjoy an abundance of great food, including desserts and sweets. Some of the foods I will enjoy include: chapatis (or rotis), puris, parathas, matar paneer, chana masala, malai kofta, vegetable biryani and raita. For dessert, I will enjoy gulab jamun, rasmalai, jalebi, gajar ka halwa and boondi ka laddo. To drink, I will enjoy mango lassi.
To all of the amazing Hindu women around the world who are honoring their husbands this year - Happy Karva Chauth! Jai Mata Di. 🌞🌑🌟💛👀🌲🌎
