if you can keep the fast then go for it it makes your MIL happy and you will love all the rituals. enjoy it.
I also dnt believe in all these rituals. But i do as my MIL says . I enjoy dis fast as i lv to do makeuo nd all.. And it also keep my mil happy
Is this ur 1st karwa chaudh,shilpa? . i dont know about these rituals,but ve seen it only on tv. Staying all day,bhookhi,can ve something only after seeing chandh,no! But just obey her for ur family s future happiness.
Unless you are not ready by yourself any prayers /rituals doesn't make sense.Sit with MIL & discuss.Surely she will understand.
@Evelyn Shilpa See one can eat food or wear cloth to make someone happy.Prayers or puja is for self to connect with almighty & just to make someone happy.u can't lie to yourself :blush:
Enjoy the fast but yes if its your first one then pls say to ur mil to giv milk or fruits in the evening so it will be easy in future.
Hi Evelyn,there is one thing I do at karva chauth is that at 4pm ,I read the katha and then have tea and water.Then I break the fast after seeing the moon... You can try doing that.
I think you should do what you feel is right. Make your MIL understand..because today it is karwa chauth..tomorrow it will be some other fast!
See shilpa.belief is diff.feelings r dift.doing something for ur own people's happiness is great.BTW u don't loose anything.if u can fast pl go ahead.may b somewhere its good for u only.
Absolutely Ayushi, I agree...because these customs n traditions are best enjoyed if your heart is in it... otherwise they appear as a burden.....
Do not keep the fast. If you don't believe in it, then why give false hope to anyone. Your in laws have to accept you as you are. Being someone you are not is the first mistake you can make when beginning a new relationship. Trust me, husbands always take neutral grounds but you need to stand your ground. Don't pave the way to higher expectations for your in laws.
Agree with Ayushi as unless yourind n heart is into sumthing no point going ahead for one time pleasing as always if you can only then do
True galz. If you keep the fast this year then u have to keep it for life long. If u are comfortable, keep fast but on fruits full day and eat after Puja. By this method u n your mil both will b happy. You should always take out some mid way n never say no to somebody, just add your conditions in life.
This reminds me a 25 yrs back Story. In Gujarati Girls do "Jaya Parva Vrat." Belief is you get good Husband. I don't believe in it. You can't eat Salt for 5 days. My daughter wanted to do as her friends were keeping fast. I gave her example of my maid just to convince her. " She has kept the fast even though her husband beats her every day ". ( actually he was beating). Next day she was able to convince her 4 to 5 trends to break the fast by giving this example. OMG. Their parents called me that your daughter is teaching wrong thins to our daughters. Lol. Ha..ha. Thank God I had also told my daughter " husbands should do the fast to get good wives like us . " :grin: :grin: Atleast she didn't told my this opinion to her friends.
