I am in bed, deep in sleep;
and, she is already getting ready for the day ahead;
My sleep breaks and I call out her name;
What is it? Why are you up so early?
she smiles and answers back;
Its my day remember;
and then, I remember, surely its her day;
she will get up at 4 AM in the morning;
get all dressed up, look at the stars;
say a little prayer, have little food;
and, go hungry the whole day ahead;
Not for herself but for ME.
it is Karwa Chauth; the Indian festival of Women;
who go hungry the whole day, not for themselves;
but for their husbands;
It’s a Man’s World they say;
but some how I feel, it is only because;
these selfless Women have given us that right;
we owe it to them, to love them right;
and, give them wings to fly;
their is no way in the world that a man can repay;
what a women does for him;
the least he can do is give her the same selfless love;
and, happiness for life.
Wishing all the women a very happy Karva Chauth and saluting their spirit for being so selfless in their love and dedication.
A very special Karva Chauth wishes to my Wife, Mom and Sister, whom I have seen so closely and who have indebted me with their selfless love for life.
