Karwa Chauth is an extremely popular festival in India that is celebrated by married women. For the longevity and well-being of husbands, wives observe fast the whole long day. From sunrise to moonrise, women observe vritu, literally no food and no water. The day is also known to cheer up the bond between mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law.
Karwa Chauth, a traditional Indian event, honors the sacred tie of love between a husband and wife. On this auspicious day, Indian women fast for the entire day and pray to God for their husbands’ long life. This is a celebration that tells the volumes about a couple’s undying love. Women execute rituals as soon as the Moonlight embraces the sky, and the wait is done!
