A married woman celebrates Karva Chauth by observing a fast for the long life of her husband. And above all is the 'Shringar' that includes applying henna and adorning the bridal makeup.
A fast that ensures the well-being, prosperity and longevity of their husbands, the festival of Karwa Chauth provides an opportunity for all married women to get close to their in-laws. Possessing a tremendous social and cultural significance, this festival is celebrated by keeping fast, applying henna and exchange of gifts.
It's like a quid pro quo.
Since marriage is an equal opportunity /responsibility relationship - it's only fair that both parties keep a fast for one another.
So we did.... Darn.. it ain't easy staying without food and water.... for 1 day!!
Sups and Mom.. ready their plates.. this must be done before sunset
7th September 08!!
Aman finally gets the ring, the rock and the man.... ok so she has to wait a bit for the man!!!
Aman looks quite the princess!!
He gets the PHOOLs!!
It's been a long time since we met... old times at NIIT revisited!
Interestingly enough - Supriya and I reached on time... dot on the hour.. 12:20.. given the fact that Aman had been stressing on reaching there at 12 NOON!!
Dats Priyanka.... off to Bangalore.... leaving the lush green city of Delhi for the smoke filled confines of Bangalore...
SO we had a fun filled evening.. where we treated her to "good" (cooked by me) food, booze and a final sleep off on the floor - courtesy the Power outage and a conked out inverter!
I started the newsletter in Dec 2007 as an attempt at keeping the family updated on each others activities and making sure we remembered all the birthdays and anniversaries.
What started out as an attempt in design has now become something i take a lot of effort to make and disseminate.
I'm putting up the early editions on this BLOG.
August -08 onwards will be updated on my normal blog
