'Is Karva Chauth latent perpetuation of an unequal world?'
While some actresses in Bollywood observed a fast for their husbands, there were others who didn’t.
Gul Panag tweeted: ‘So #karwachauth debate has started on my TL. First strike @seemagoswami (I'm not a neutral party-since being a non believer I'm feasting:p) Is #karwachauth latent perpetuation of an unequal world? Of patriarchy? Or is it love, devotion, feeling, emotion (as #Enigma says)?’
Raveena Tandon, on the other hand, celebrated the festival traditionally. ‘Did my aarti with my husband and kids,all 3 had a sip of water first and then gave me a sip and a bite to eat..and then we celebrated,its not only for the well being of ur husband..but for the well being of ur happiness and family.. Wonder why some women finding this inferior..maybe they're too used to Valentines day!! Hahhahahaha’ she wrote.
