Happy Gangaur today to those ladies who will be fasting for the longevity of their husbands. There will be Udyapan puja thereafter. I am always amazed by such culture and traditions as there is so much of thoughtfulness and commitment for the relationship. Weather it really increases the life of husband or not is another debate. But it surely enhances the relationship.
