Karwa Chauth 2021 Live Updates: Widely celebrated in the northern part of India, Karwa Chauth is the celebration of marriage, wherein the wife fasts the entire day for a long and healthy life for her husband.

According to Drik Panchang, Karwa Chauth fasting is done during the Krishna Paksha Chaturthi in the Hindu month of ‘Kartik’. The origin of Karwa Chauth can be traced back to Mahabharata when Savitri had begged the God of Death Lord Yama for her husband’s soul. Another episode in the epic talks about Pandavas and their wife Draupadi. It is said that Arjuna went to the Nilgiris to pray and meditate for a few days, worried about his safety Draupadi, sought her friend Krishna’s help. He advised her to observe a strict fast just like Goddess Parvati did for her husband Shiva’s safety. Draupadi adhered to it, and soon Arjuna returned home safely.

This year, the festival will be celebrated on October 24. The fasting timing is between 6.27 am and 8.07 pm and puja muhurat is from 5.43 pm to 6.59 pm. Moonrise is expected any time after 8.07 pm.

Did you know?

The festival gets its name from ‘karva’ which means ‘earthen pots’ used to store wheat, and ‘chauth’ meaning the fourth day. Women buy new earthen pots or karwa and decorate them by putting in gifts like bangles, bindis and sweets inside. They exchange their karwas with other married women and perform the rituals.

Wish your loved ones with these wishes

On this day, women wake up early before sunrise to observe the rituals. They begin their day with sargi, which is a plate of heavy and nutritious meal comprising ghee-loaded halwa, dry fruits, and fresh fruits given by their mothers-in-law. After that, they observe a rigorous fast without food and water for the entire day. It is only when the moon rises that they perform further rituals with their husband and worship the celestial body to break their fast. Usually, male partners are expected to feed them by helping them take the first bite of food and drink water.
