Karwa Chauth is the day to celebrate the love between a husband and wife. It is a festival celebrated by Indian women by keeping a fast for their husbands from the sunrise and moonrise without food or water.
Karwa Chauth is a traditional Indian festival which signifies the marital bond shared between a husband and wife. It is a long-day festivity wherein the wife keeps a fast for her husband’s long life.
The festival of Karwa Chauth is celebrated on the fourth day (Chaturthi) of the Karthika month of the Hindu calendar. The term ‘Karwa’ refers to an earthen pot and ‘Chauth’ denotes the fourth day.
According to the Indian traditions, keeping a Karva Chauth’s fast is every wife’s duty as it helps in increasing the lifespan of the husband. With time, these notions and folklores are finding an exit but this festival hasn’t lost its significance. Now, it is seen as a way of celebrating the marital life.
