KARWACHAUTH

In our culture, the Karwachauth is an important festival for all married women. From sunrise till moonrise, she keeps a fast for the safety of her husband. Keeping a fast without drinking water and eating any food all through the day seems to be a difficult one but the doting wives performs all these with much love and respect in their head and heart for their husbands. The meaning of Karwachauth is offering Argya to the moon using an earthen pot known as Karwa on the Chaturthi of the Karthika month. It falls on the fourth day of the dark fortnight in the Kartika month every year. The origin of this festival is still very hazy but there are definitely some anecdotes associated with this festival. The SSDS mandir organises a small fair a day before Karwachauth wherer the ladies can purchase all they need for the karwachauth. Women get intricate mehendi designs applied which is also organised at the mandir for the whole day.
