Also known as Karak Chaturthi, Karwa Chauth is a significant Hindu festival that is observed on the fourth day after the full moon in Kartik month, which is usually in October or early November. It’s an annual festival wherein married women observe a strict fast and worship Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati to seek blessings for the well-being of their husbands. On this auspicious day, women wake up before sunrise and dress-up in the most beautiful attires to begin the fast. They don’t consume even a drop of water until moonrise, i.e. only after the Argha (offering of water) is made to the Moon, they open their fast.
Many folklores are attached to this festival of India that underlines the fact that if a married woman observes this fast with utmost dedication, she can move mountains to protect her husband.
