What Is Karva Chauth

Date Of Karwa Chauth 2017 :  Sunday- 8 October!

 Karva Chauth is a one-day festival celebrated by Hindu women in Northern India, in which married women fast from sunrise to moonrise for the safety and longevity of their husbands. The fast is traditionally celebrated in the states of Rajasthan, parts of Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, and Punjab. The festival falls on the fourth day after the full moon, in the Hindu lunisolar calendar month of Kartik. Sometimes, unmarried women join the fast for their fiances or desired husbands.
Karva is another word for ‘pot’ (a small clay pot of water) and chauth ways ‘fourth‘ in Hindi (a orientation to the fact that the festival falls on the fourth day of the dark-fortnight, or Krishna paks, of the month of Kartik). The fiesta originated and came to be celebrated only in the north-western part of the Indian subcontinent. One hypothesis is that military campaigns were often carried out by men in far off places whereby men would often leave their wives and children to go off to war. Their wives would often pray for their safe return. The festival also coincides with the wheat-sowing time (i.e., the beginning of the Rabi crop cycle). Big earthen pots in which wheat is stored are sometimes called Karvas, so the fast may have begun as a prayer for a good harvest in this predominantly wheat-eating region.

Another story about the origin of this festival relates to the bond of feminine friendship. With the custom of arranged wedding being prevalent, the newly-wed bride would reside with her husband and the in-laws. Everyone being a stranger to her, the custom arose of befriending another woman as her friend (kangan-saheli) or sister (dharam-behn) for life. Their friendship would be holy through a Hindu ritual during the marriage ceremony itself. The bride’s friend would usually be of the same-age (or somewhat older), typically married into the same village (so that she would not go away) and not directly related to her in-laws (so there was no conflict of interest later). This emotional and psychological bond would be considered akin to a blood relationship. It is said that Karva Chauth festival evolved to include celebrating this special bond of friendship.

A few days before Karva Chauth, married women would buy new karvas (spherical clay pots) — 7″-9″ in diameter and 2-3 litres capacity—and paint them on the outside with beautiful designs. Inside they would put bangles and ribbons, home-made candy and sweets, make-up items, and small clothes. The women would then visit each other on the day of Karva Chauth and exchange these karvas.
