Women across India are eagerly waiting for the moon to rise, while the men are busy deciding what to gift their wives who have been observing a fast for them. It is Karva Chauth and women are chanting prayers for the long life and safety of their husbands. Twitterati, however, is managing to have its share of the fun too. A floodgate of Karva Chauth memes have opened on the social media, with hilarious observations about the festival and the celebrants being made by the users.
From calling it the day women deposit the annual premium for their husbands’ life insurance policies to the Valentine’s day of married couples, Twitter is having a ball! And we are not complaining. After all, it is the most respectable and ‘sanskaari’ way to express your love for your husband, a thought otherwise considered a taboo in the society.
While some people have sympathised with the wives who have to “tank up a full meal at 4:30 am” on this day, others have wanted to hold 2 minutes of silence for the girl who once fasted for her boyfriend but got married to someone else!
Yes, Twitter was savage this Karva Chauth and here’s the proof.

Wife came to me at 9AM.
Put a channi in front of my bald head.
“Now I’ve seen the moon”, and proceeded to breakfast.#KarwaChauth
