Karva Chauth 2017

Karva Chauth is a traditional festival of North India wherein married Hindu women observe a fast for longevity, well-being and prosperity of their husbands. Karwa chauth is also known as Karak Chaturthi. Today married women of all castes and culture, specially the newly-weds, celebrate Karva Chauth in a grand manner - thanks to Bollywood! And over the years, a lot of young, single women have also begun observing the fast in the hope of finding a good husband.

The word 'Karwa' implies an earthen pot with a spout (which is used in this festival), while 'Chauth' means the fourth day and hence the festival is called 'Karva Chauth'. Karwa Chauth falls in October or November, about nine days before Diwali on the fourth day of Kartik month. Several mythologies underscoring the significance of the festival of Karva Chauth exist, such as the legends of Queen Veeravati, Satyavan & Savitri and Draupadi of Mahabharat.
