Celebrating Karva Chauth!!

TECHNICALLY DEFn
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. 

MODERN REALITY
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!!

The Newsletter Archives - Part 1

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
