Gangaur is one of the most celebrated festivals of Rajasthan where women worship Goddess Gauri, the wife of Lord Shiva, in order to find a good husband, or in case if they are married, women pray for husband’s health and a happy married life.
But why Gangaur is only a female-centric procession? When marriage is a two-way process, why don’t men become a part of it and fast for 18 days? Aren’t both husband and wife supposed to make equal efforts in order to make a marriage successful?
This festival has such a beautiful meaning and motto behind it. What if men are a part of it too, so that it develops as one of the best festivals in India? Just wondering.
