Indian Customs, Rituals and Tradition – Your Take

There is no compulsion that you have to respond. But somehow I feel this is one of the very interesting topics, if not important.
There are as many people to make fun of the rituals as the ones who try to make sense of them.
Following is Twinkle Khanna’s take on the Karva Chauth ritual:
A slightly updated version:
How many men feel happy if their respective wives follow these rituals for them?
How many women feel it and do on their own rather than for mother-in-law or a custom ought to be followed?
Not just Karva Chauth, any ritual for that matter.
