Karwa Chauth is a traditional Hindu Festival of married women, and is celebrated in India and some parts of Pakistan.
Married women fast whole day without food or water for the long life of their husbands. The ritual signifies extreme love and devotion to the husband, as evidenced by the wife’s willingness to suffer for his well being.
Karwa Chauth Vrat Katha in English:
Longtime ago, there lived a family having 7 brothers and one sister. Sister’s name was veeravati.
After her marriage, on occasion of her first Karva Chauth, she came to her parents place, and decided to strictly observe the Karva Chauth fast, observing fast from sunrise till the time moon rises.
