If one wants to witness the festivity of Indian fasting, nothing is better than the festival of Karwa Chauth.
The markets are filled up to the brim with Karwa Chauth special goodies. From special ‘sargi’ food items to stunning and vibrantly colored bangles, the markets are all glitter for the day. Adding to the festivity is Bikanervala which has announced a special contest exclusively for Karwa Chauth for which it is inviting photographs from both husbands and wives.
The Indian festival commemorating commitment and romance has called for many restaurants and hotels offering contests in which one can win special discounts and stay packages. Bikanervala has invited photographs of husbands and wives who would put Hena (Mehndi) on their hands for the festival. To participate, one needs to Share their Mehndi Moments and a line about Bikanervala on Bikanervala’s Facebook page. The Sweetest capture will win gift vouchers by Bikanervala.
Karwa Chauth’15 is special for one very positive reason. Male teachers in a junior high school at Bareilly District have appealed to the Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA) for a leave on the festival. The reason that has been stated by them is that it is not only a festival for women. Bikanervala is taking the positivity a step ahead by adding to it a healthy competitiveness.
Bikanervala spokesperson said, “The competition is open for both men and women as now both husband and wife keep fasts. What more is that men even get their wives names written with hena on their palms. We wished to take this ahead by converting this into a healthy competition. Let’s see who bag the prizes.”
The competition is all set to start and people can start posting their photographs on Bikanervala page with #karwachauthmehndi.
