India is great and no one can beat Indian women! Today, we marked Karwa Chauth, a Hindu festival where married women fast and pray for the long life of their husbands.
Around 50 women prisoners in Lucknow jail also observed the fast today.
As a part of tradition, Uttar Pradesh minister for jails, Dharamveer Prajapati, issued a direction to allow married women prisoners to observe the fast and under rituals.
According to the jail administration, around 10 inmates celebrated their first Karwa Chauth in jail. The jail authorities also allowed the family members of the women inmates to send them puja material and edibles, reported IANS.
Ashish Tiwari, senior superintendent of the district jail, said,
These women were allowed to perform all rituals under observation. Their barracks will be shut only after they are done with the puja. Husbands of about half-a-dozen women inmates are also lodged in the jail. They will be allowed to meet their wives on the auspicious day.
The superintendent also said that all necessary arrangements were made for the women inmates who wished to observe the festival.
But here is something that we couldn’t miss!
Interestingly, in Gorakhpur, about 12 women inmates of the district jail observed the Karwa Chauth fast.
Out of them, two women prisoners who observed the fast, are implicated in the murder of their husbands.
According to media reports, a woman, who was jailed for killing her brother with the assistance of her boyfriend, was also fasting.
