Why this Chaturthi an Indian wife still holds fast from sun rise to moon rise and only breaks it after the husband feeds her. Does the husband keep a fast too? Or such actions on a wife’s part is an example of her dedication towards her Pati. It’s quite amazing that the Indian wife has to prove over and over again that she is dedicated to her husband through various rituals that were made keeping in mind a patriarchal society.
