India is a land of traditions, and every religion has its own set of customs and traditions to be followed. Karwa Chauth is one such occasion, which is followed with great enthusiasm and passion. Karwa Chauth is celebrated by all married Hindu women, who observe a fast from the break of day till they sight the moon, for the well being and long life of their husbands.

Karwa Chauth Vrat Rituals:

This is one beautiful custom, which helps strengthen the bonds between a husband and a wife. No other religion has such a beautiful concept than in Hindus. This festival was specially celebrated by the North Indians, but is slowly catching up in the rest of India, and women make a great deal of preparation for Karwa Chauth.

Karwa Chauth also is a time, when all the families get together to celebrate, and share food, and exchange gifts. The gifts are all meaningful that help in imbibing love, affection and brightness in a married couples life.

The women apply henna, and dress in their finest clothes and adorn their jewels for their husbands like they dressed up for their marriage.

The significant feature of Karwa Chauth is that the women undertake the fast at the break of dawn and break the fast only after seeing the moon. This fast is unique as the wife has neither a morsel of food nor drop of water for the whole day, just to pray for her husbands’ long life and well-being. Spiritually fasting helps create a connection with God, and also helps in establishing a co-ordination between body and mind.

The husbands also take an active part in Karwa Chauth by gifting their wives for the fast they kept for their long life. The gifts include jewellery, saris, accessories that should implicate nothing but pure love for their wives. So keep a Karwa Chauth vrath for your husband, for his longevity and security.
