Karwa Chauth is a special day for a married couple. To express her love for her beloved husband and to pray for his safety & longevity the wife fasts from dawn till moonrise, ensuring that not even a drop of water trickles down her throat during this period.
Deeply moved by her devotion, he reciprocates her love for him by showering her with some of the most special gifts and delights.
History of Karwa Chauth
The word “karwa” translates to ‘pot’, and “chauth” means fourth. Every fourth day of the dark fortnight in the month of Kartik of the Hindu calendar, the eve of Karwa Chauth is celebrated.
The exact origins of Karwa Chauth are unknown, but historians speculate that in the Vedic age when the men went to war, they would leave their wives and children at home. Their wives would pray for their husband’s safety by fasting till they returned, and thus carrying out the tradition that we now refer to as Karwa Chauth. Till this day, this ritual has been carried forward, retaining every bit of the significance and auspiciousness that went into it.
