NOT A Big Deal!

Karwa Chauth is a festival that is primarily celebrated in North India. Many Indian female actresses celebrate the day and share pictures in beautiful sarees. A Reddit user highlighted how such things on social media are promoting regressive ideologies that make other women follow it as a trend too. To a large extent, this does make sense. And, this also makes many women feel left out because they don’t choose to participate in it. This FOMO is natural but it’s not a big deal if you aren’t doing what the majority is. There are many who have similar feelings. The pressure of in-laws and society is dealt with by many women, and sometimes sticking to your own principles is okay.
