Karwa Chauth 2022: One of the most important festivals celebrated mainly by Hindu married women in India, is celebrated each year on the Chaturthi Tithi of Kartik Krishna Paksha according to the Hindu calendar. On this day, women observe a day-long fast for the longevity, safety, and prosperity of their husbands. It is a Nirjala vrat (one observed without eating and drinking). Women can break their fast after the sighting of the chandrama (Moon). To end their fasts, women offer prayers to the moon in the evening.
Women who observe the fast begin their day with 'sargi' a meal that is eaten before sunrise. According to the traditions, mothers-in-law give sargi to their daughters-in-law to begin their fast. On the auspicious festival, women also worship Chauth Mata in the evening, who is the manifestation of Goddess Parvati.
