Gone weekend we celebrated Karvachauth a festival dedicated to husband and wife. This festival is celebrated in almost all the parts of India, through tradition might differ.
A For me Karvachauth mean fasting during the day, yes my hubby also fats along to give me company..:D, followed by partings in afternoon that dinner after seeing the moon.
