About Karva Chauth
Karva Chauth, as practiced these days, is observed by married women for ensuring wedded bliss and long and happy lives for their husbands and families. The origin, its social and practical significance and associated tales will be fascinating to many amongst us who are not entirely familiar with the festival. A few informative Internet sites on the subject include:
On the occasion of Karva Chauth, which is on the fourth day (Chauth) of the Kartik month (eighth month of the lunar calendar and one of the holiest in the Hindu calendar), fasting (vrat) is observed.
Karva refers to the decorated clay pot which is used to exchange beauty trinkets among women. The intent of the festival is also to build bonds with like-minded girlfriends who offer social support to a bride when she moves to the home of her newly-wedded husband and her in-laws.
