Karva Chauth 2019 is just around the corner and women around the country have already started preparing for the festival. From applying mehndi to getting their outfit of the day ready, the preparations are in full swing. It is a significant day for married women as they celebrate this day by observing a day-long fast without food and water for the prosperity and long life of their husbands. Married women fast on the day of Karva Chauth from sunrise to moonrise, without drink a single drop of water and eating until they sight the moon late in the evening. The fast begins with women eating sargi before the moonrise and complete the fast by offering argha (water) to the moon and touching their husband’s feet. The festival also signifies the bond of love and togetherness between the couple.

It’s a day of fast by my dear wife; It’s because she simply cares for my life,

Though I can eat and drink as may please; But she has to contend till Moon she can see,

The love and affection that she shows; I simply have nothing to say but I take a bow!

Happy Karwa Chauth!!

As history goes, after having observed fast through the day, women offer prayers to Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati, and Lord Kartik to bless them with a blissful life. While performing this puja, before the moon-sighting, women narrate a story about a queen named Veervati. Veervati was the only sister among seven brothers; hence was the most loved one in the family. She was married off at a young age; her first Karva Chauth was celebrated at her parents’ home. She followed a strict fast from sunrise but desperately waited for the moon to appear. Seeing her thirsty and hunger-stricken, her brothers couldn’t bear any longer and thought of an idea. They created a mirror in a pipal tree and made it look like the moon had risen. Veervati mistook it as the moon and broke the fast and the moment she took a morsel in her mouth, she got a message from her servants that her husband was dead.

Heartbroken, she wept all night long until a goddess appeared in front of her and asked her about her misery. When Veervati told the goddess, she asked her to observe the Karva Chauth fast again with dedication and devotion to see her husband alive. Veervati followed her instructions and observed a fast again. Seeing this dedication, Yama, the god of death, was forced to bring her husband back to life.
