Guys! It’s the time you return the favor that is due...

Karva Chauth is around the corner and it’s another Indian festivity that needs no introduction, all thanks to the Bollywood movies like DDLJ and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham which have portrayed the larger than life image of Karva Chauth. While all you women out there might know the anecdotish importance and the real purpose of celebrating this festival, for few of us it is a day to celebrate the marital bond and wish for the longevity of other half’s life.

The concept of Karva Chauth is quite simple- Wives keep a long-day fast from sunrise to moonrise without having food or a single drop of water and then at the end of the day they break their fast while having water and sweet from their husband’s hands. Sounds cool but yes it’s patriarchal.

Well, have you ever given a thought that only women have been seen fasting for the well-being of their husbands? I mean, if the couple wants to enjoy and spend their lives together then men should also start keeping fast for the equal long-life of their wives. What say, guys?

Reasons why men should fast for their wives:

1. For the lovely grin on your wife’s face
