Tonight, women mainly from North Indian communities observe Karva Chauth, on the fourth night of the full moon of the Hindu calendar month Kartik that falls after the Autumnal Equinox. As a part of the ritual, married women fast from sunrise to moonrise, praying for the safety and long life of their husbands. It they also pray that they should be blessed with the same life partner for the seven lives that they will lead as human. That possibility, however bleak, means that when you true love, your soul mate, you want to stick together for eternity. There is no end to thinking positive and wishing good for yourself now, is there?
