Karva Chauth is a festival on which a married woman observe fast for whole day for the long life of her husband. Yes, she loves him and want him to live long. But there is no balance of the tradition, I mean there is no fast to be observed by a man for his wife. Does he not love his wife? Whatever, atleast so called India’s rich tradition seems to be biased as far as karva chauth is concerned.
Only woman fasting for her husband shows the importance of life of a man. But probably woman’s life is not so important. If woman is not important; killing her for dowry, killing her before birth etc. is not a big deal. So India’s tradition of karva chauth is ‘oil in the fire of women killing’.
