So, here again we have the festival when a woman professes her love for her man, KarwaChauth. (To know about Karwachauth read here.) And my phone is abuzz with hordes of messages - congratulatory posts, advise posts on what women should eat in Sargi to help her with whole day of fasting, and even jokes like this one:
Which English movie name describe the festival of Karwachauth?
Fast and Furious
(1 day fast and 364 days furious)
lol, I have my share of laughs reading such messages though.
I believe this day is very sacred and can be taken as Hindu Valentine's Day if (condition applies) taken in right spirit. A woman professes her undying love for her husband by fasting for a whole day. (If you don't believe in such things, don't worry you can always skip it and eat your heart out, I am all in support for that too, after all, love is not about food and all about caring for each other.)
But, being a die hard romantic myself, I like to fast for my hubby. I really get excited about this day well in advance. And maybe its my happiness that keeps me going strong for the whole day. And still, I strongly believe husbands should not take this festival lightly if their wives are fasting and they too can (read should) display their affection to their lovely wives. No matter, how many rocks your marriage has hit, how many feathers you have added in the hat of years in the commitment, this relationship doesn't get old enough to express love and gratitude. This is the magic of togetherness called marriage, you are committed to your partner for your whole life - to rekindle the joy, the love, the passion whenever possible.
Hence, if you are that newly married guy nervously biting nails as your wife gets ready to keep her first fast or a 50 year old grandfather who has seen your wife going through this day swiftly year after year, don't take your role lightly. I repeat, DON'T TAKE YOUR ROLE DURING KARWACHAUTH LIGHTLY.
So, here are the five ways (in reverse order) how you can win over your lady love on the auspicious day of Karwachauth:A woman, irrespective of her age is always pleased when her love is respected and reciprocated. Pamper her this #KarwaChauth.— roohi bhatnagar (@RoohiBhatnagar) October 29, 2015
5. Present her with Bouquet of fresh flowers:
4. Surprise her with a beautifully packed gift:
3. Cook for her:
Well, well, well only if you have a knack for cooking else better to order her favorite dish from outside or much better would be to take her out for dinner after she's done with the rituals. A piece of friendly advice though, reserve a dining place which is near to your place of stay in advance. You don't want to keep a starving woman waiting for her food forever else she'll feed on you (Beware! This year Halloween is just the next day!) And if you love cooking, then whoa, unleash all your talent to prepare that yummy dish that can make her lick fingers (hers and it can be yours too ;))
2. Fast with her:

If you think that's very DDLJish and old fashioned, then you are just fooling yourself. It's an evergreen idea. So what if it's not her first time, give her company this time and let it reveal slowly to her that you have not eaten for the whole day, as well. I bet your Simran will be head over heels in love with you all over again!
1. Give Time to her:

Yeah, that's pretty much of the story from my end. I have tried my best to help all you guys out there with insiders points. You can definitely add to this list. You see, it's not that complicated to delight a woman, it's just that she needs your 100% attention, concentration and imagination.
Ok, so let me go now and prepare for my fast and check if my husband is taking me seriously or else.... It's Halloween... heeheeehaahaaaahahaha
