Celebrated by women in North India and some parts of Pakistan, Karva Chauth is a festival dedicated for the safety and longevity of husbands and fiancés. Believed to have been created by women whose husbands worked in military forces, this festival is observed only in the northern parts of India. Though the rituals and customs vary from place to place, the essence of the festival remains the same. This fast’s glory is such that it even finds mention in the great Indian epic Mahabharata. The preparations for Karwa Chauth include shopping for cosmetics, jewelry, puja items, henna and the decoration of the ‘Puja Thali’. The fast starts with a scrumptious pre-dawn meal called ‘Sargi’, followed by a day devoid of food and water. It is also customary for fasting married women to dress up in elaborate attires in the evening for the grand Puja, the centre point of all festivities. The moonrise marks the culmination of fasting which is when the women break their fast by drinking water. Celebrated with great importance, Karwa Chauth is blended with Indian culture and tradition.
