Here’s How Karva Chauth Is Portrayed By Bollywood Vs How It Is In Reality


It’s that time of the year when women all over India stay hungry and thirsty for one entire day only to prove their love for their well, better halves. Karva Chauth is a tradition that’s been passed down for ages. It’s a simple concept; the wife remains hungry and the husband lives a happy, long life. Yes, it seems like a sweet, romantic gesture but have you ever wondered what goes on through the wife’s mind while she remains devoid of FOOD? Well, blame Bollywood for glamorizing this practice because here’s the real difference between how Karva Chauth is portrayed in Bollywood and what it really is in reality:

 

1.  According to Bollywood, women look super pretty in spite of not eating or drinking anything. But in reality, it’s quite the opposite.

3. When it’s time to break the Vrath, Bollywood showed us the reason the wife looks so happy is because of a) the moon and b) her husband obviously! But she’s actually imagining all the food she’s going to be eating. Thus the smile!

8. According to Bollywood, both the husband and wife are as excited to see the moon. But in reality, it’s the husband who’s a little more relieved because now he won’t have to deal with a cranky and hungry wife.

9. In Bollywood, sargi is that beautiful hour of the day when everyone gets together and eats well before the fast. In reality, sargi is all about eating and just eating.

Why so sweet, yaar? Itni formality acche nahi hoti. Be yourself rather than pretending to be someone else. Don’t be so sweet this Karva Chauth. Instead, be a little bindass and chatpata, likeKurkure and this guy…
