On the eve of Karvachauth, today, Dogra women will be fasting today. Beating hunger and thirst, they will pray for longevity of their beloved husbands. Each year women follow the custom but only a few men repay it by observing the fast themselves.
This article is for those looking for other ways to please the wives. Here is a list of things husbands can do to please their wives today:
Long drive: A long drive on Jammu-Katra highway. Sidhara road or Jammu-Pathankot highway is suggested. If not possible, a stroll in Bagh-E-Bahu, Green Belt Park, in Rajinder Park or along Ranbir Canal at Akhnoor Road would do.
Dinner date: What could be more fulfilling than a sumptuous dinner after a hard day of starving! Take your wives out for dinner somewhere or at least treat her with an ice cream.
Movie together: Depending on ones tastes, couples should pick a movie and watch it; be in a cinema hall or the privacy of your room. The latter sounds like a better option though!
Revisit your memories: One novel and inexpensive way to strnghthen your bond would be to revisit your memories by going through a photos album together.
Give her gifts: A conventional way of showing your love is by gifting her. Depending upon your partner’s choices, you can gift her jewellery, perfumes, dresses, shoes and so on.
You can also have fast and do home course for this special day and make her feel extra-special.
We hope this day strengthens the bond of love between you two. May the almighty bless you with a happy and long married life. Happy Karwa Chauth!
