Karwa Chauth 2019: Know Date, Important Puja Rituals, Timings Of The Festival

Karwa Chauth or Karva Chauth is a Hindu festival when married women and women of marriageable age observe a nirjala fast and don't consume food or water. The fast is kept for the safety and long life of their husbands and is celebrated mostly in northern states of India. These days, many husbands have also started observing the fast with their wives for their well-being. On this day, women wear new clothes and apply henna on their hands. They, along with other women, sing songs and narrate folk tales around the festival. A sargi or a pre-dawn meal is given to them by their mother-in-laws. This thaali has sweets, dry fruits, matthri, feni, a saree and jewellery. The women get up early in the morning and have items from the sargi they receive.
