Marriage is not a fairy tale. It is not a fairy tale because it is even a better story where you create the magic yourself. True, it takes a lot of hard work to make a marriage work and everyone wants their partner to live forever. Fuelled by that thought, people often engage in different things. Certainly, in India, one of those activities is Karva Chauth. It’s a day when married women keep fast for their husband’s long life. On this day let us tell you the tale of an Egyptian woman who carries her husband on her back.

The lady named Heba is carrying her husband on her back for past 5 years. Why? It’s because he is ill and unable to move anywhere by himself.




Quite lovingly, it is his wife who took charge of his health to ensure that he lives a life not surrounded by misery.
