Karva Chauth 2020 ❤
I had an almost 24 hour DRY FAST – yes, you heard that right: NO food, NO water, NO excuses. Every since I’ve moved countries, I’ve been observing this fast on Karva Chauth. Traditionally, in India, a wife observes this fast from sunrise to moonrise for the safety and longevity of her husband. I personally observe this day of fast for my Future Husband (sounds cliched & dramatic/ filmi, lol). 😉
The hardest part isn’t the NO FOOD, it is the NO WATER. Thankfully, I didn’t have much to do today, hence could rest and catch a nap in the afternoon. 😀 I painted my hand with Hena and dressed up in traditional wear in the evening.
I am a big believer in ALL GOD’s and treat all religions with equal respect. At around 7 PM when the Azaan goes on for prayer time, I prayed to Allah since there isn’t any temple or mandir near where I live! I remember, last year, I had a friend drive down from another city to pick me up and take me to pray at the Gurudwara, and I prayed there and opened my fast with the Prasad and the Langar served there. It is always a beautiful, pure, calm and serene feeling to connect to the Divine through prayers and all the more special when the prayers are for another human, who you haven’t even have met – EVER. On this auspicious day, I pray to the Lord to bestow his blessings upon my soul mate, my husband to be, so we cross our paths and meet one another soon to share this journey of life ❤
My November Challenge:
Today, I am grateful to the Universe for:
- WATER. (A 20 hour DRY FAST makes you appreciate these soooo much!)
- Family & friends who love me
- AFTERNOON NAP (Gosh.. I was so exhausted today + had super sore arms due to yest’s workout)
- WFH – I love having a shower at 12 PM 😛 (clearly spoilt!)
Much love, hugs xoxo
