The festive season kickstarts with one of the most festival celebrated by Indian women- Karva Chauth. This year Karva Chauth is being celebrated on 8th October 2017. It is a highly famous celebration which is carried out by married women in India. Karva Chauth is observed on the fourth day after full moon of Hindu month of Kartik. Even unmarried women observe fast to have the husband they desire or for their fiancés. Over the years, Karva Chauth has been an integral part of festivals celebrated by Hindu women of India. With mainstream Bollywood showing Karva Chauth with exuberance, it has become a rather fashion in Northern India. So, would it be fair to celebrate Karva Chauth without a touch of Bollywood? Nay!
