Yesterday was the auspicious `Karwa Chauth`, wherein the women folks were seen donning traditional attire, applying mehendi and praying for the long life of their husbands while observing the traditional fasting. And while the women have been doing it traditionally, it now seems like many men wish to reciprocate the favour!

It`s a trend that seems to be fast catching up among young urban men too, who do not believe it`s a compulsion for their wife to observe a Karva Chauth fast, nor do they mind observing the fast for and with their better half.
One such person is the TV actor is Sanjay Gagnani who had observed fasting on the occaasssion of ‘Karwa Chauth’ this year. Speaking about the same, he said, “It`s a special one this year as it`s our first after marriage and also because I`m also fasting with Poonam. I believe that just as wives care and sacrifice for their husbands, we should too. The love that this tradition brings between the couple is unmatched and I feel proud to fast for her as she is doing so for me”.
