Karva Chauth is a festival usually observed by married women, who keep a day-long fast praying for the long life of their husbands. Women observe rigorous fasting on this day, without even drinking a glass of water after sunrise. It is only when the moon rises that they eat something to break their fast. During this time, men are generally expected to feed the first bite of food to their wives. Preparations for this day includes putting on mehendi, wearing new clothes and taking care of oneself, and spending time with family and loved ones.
