Karwa Chauth 2018 Puja Vidhi, Muhurat, Samagri, Mantra, Timings: Thanks to Yash Chopra and Karan Johar, almost every Indian knows about Karwa Chauth now. Celebrated by married women on the fourth day of the Hindu luni-solar calender, it got its name from ‘Karva’ which means earthen pots used to store wheat and ‘chauth’ that means the fourth day.
Although it’s a popular Punjabi tradition, states like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and some parts of Uttar Pradesh observe the festival devotedly too. Married women or those reaching marriageable age fast from sunrise to moonrise for the well-being and long life of their husband. They dress up in bright and colourful ethnic wear, similar to bridal wear and apply beautiful intricate mehendi designs on their hands.
