Amitabh also spoke about how the evening festivities went. “So the family was complete at the festive time .. and the dining table banter was filled with laughter and delightful special food.”
“A day with the family for Karva Chauth .. the day the wives pray for the longevity and good wishes for the husbands .. fasting the entire day ..pooja in the day and in the evening .. dressed up for the occasion and then the scramble to see the Moon .. through the sieve, light a diya, say a prayer, pour some ganga jal towards the Moon .. throw the the diya over the shoulder with the back to the Moon .. and have the first bite from the hands of the husband and drink the first glass of water for the day,” Amitabh added.
He also said that the moon didn’t keep the women of the house waiting. “The Moon unlike other years , was bright and appeared on the balcony horizon well before time .. on some occasions it has been covered with cloud and can be seen only later into the night .. a longer wait for the ladies .. but the Moon was generous tonight.”
