A person raised a question that why in Hindu religion we have "boy" centered festivals but none for girls. For example in north India we have bhai-duj and jhat puja festival in which family worship to god for well being of "boy" child. Bhai-duj is similar to rakshabandhan.
In a reply I said that in Navratri we worship girl child. And bhai-duj and rakshabandhan is for the love and relationship of brother and sister. This is pointless of saying that boys are treated special on these occasions.
Then another question was raised that why women always fast, sometime for husband and sometime for child(example: jhat puja)??
I was not even able to reply to it.
So is there any festivals with "girls" at the center? And is there any occasion where man take fast for "girls", if not then why always girls take fast?
The whole point of the discussion was that to come to a conclusion that Hindu religion do not treat both the genders equally and so is men centered religion.
