What is Karwa Chauth?
The literal meaning of Karwa Chauth means offering ‘Argya’ to the moon using an earthen pot known as 'Karwa' on the Chaturthi of the Karthika month. The festival falls on the fourth day of the dark fortnight in the Kartika month every year. Though the origin of this festival is still very hazy, there are various anecdotes associated with it.
Why do we celebrate Karwa Chauth?
Karwa Chauth holds the utmost importance in the Hindu culture. The prominence of this festival can be widely observed in many parts of our country. The Niraja Vrat or the Karwa Chauth is a one-day festival where married Hindu women observe fasts for the health and safety of their husbands. It is a very special fast in which the women do not eat or drink anything from sunrise to sunset. The fast is broken with the moon rising after a pooja is done by the wives for their husbands.
How is the Karwa Chauth fast taken?
It begins with an early morning prayer and is usually followed by “Sargi” - a food platter containing dry fruits, parathas, curry, and coconut water. Women consume Sargi after bath as it is believed to be a healthy meal that allows them to prepare for the day-long fasting. It keeps them energetic and allows them to stay without food or water for the entire day.
Later in the evening, the women perform puja for their husbands before the moon sighting. After this, the women see the rising moon through a sieve and then catch a glimpse of their husbands through the same. It is also believed that when a wife looks at her husband through a sieve, all negative emotions are filtered through it. Then the husband breaks his wife’s fast by offering her water.
What preparations are done by women on Karwa Chauth?
For the celebrations of Karwa Chauth, the married women wear a red saree or beautiful lehengas, and accessories with traditional jewellery. They do all the solah sringaar just like a married woman. They also decorate the temple and prepare the thali for the pooja.
