But that's not the point here. All this happy imagery makes people want to be a part of it. And the chaand ka wait. There is an excitement in that too, na? Climbing on the terrace and gazing up at the sky with your hubby. Waiting for the moon to emerge from behind the clouds. Ooooh! So romantic. Forget about the bhook pyaas (hunger and thirst) that is supposed to be troubling you. The romance of the moment should distract you from it.
And with the moon rise, the stolen glances from beneath a sieve, offering water and the tender loving looks. Perfect Indian romance. Don't you agree? How can such powerful imagery not seduce the youth. No wonder even unmarried girls want to fast!!
