Is Karva Chauth outdated?

3 hours
First broadcast:
Friday 02 November 2012

Join the discussion with Naresh Puri at 10. He's asking, if it is outdated for wives to fast for their husbands? It's Karva Chauth today, traditionally a time when women fast for their partners' health and well being. But does this custom sound outdated to you? Should you only fast if your husband does it with you? Or do you think Karva Chauth is a great tradition which brings families and couples together? Later in the show, Naresh speaks to Sundari Anitha who's behind the exhibition "Striking Women" that looks at the role Asian women played in the Grunwick and Gate Gourmet disputes. And seeing as it is Friday, our guest panel entrepreneur Tre Azam and comedian Sajeela Kershi join Naresh in studio to discuss Heroes and Villains of the week.
