Karwa Chauth is an important festival for the Hindu women who fast for the long lives of their husband on this day. The name of this pious festival came from two words, Karwa (small earthen pot) and Chauth (fourth in Hindi). Karwa Chauth is observed on the fourth day of Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartik and this year, it will be celebrated on October 28. On this day people worship Goddess Gauri and devotees offer prayers in the evening. The women who fast for their husbands break their fast only on seeing the moon.
On this special occasion, the Indian women do the 16 shringaar to impress their husbands. Some of the most important shringars include saree, mehndi, jewellery, earrings and bangles. Mehndi or henna is considered to bring good luck for their married life and without applying it, the rituals are incomplete. The Indian women take all the rituals very seriously and start preparing in advance. Buying beautiful sarees to deciding the delicious food items, everything is done with whole zeal and enthusiasm.
Putting henna on hands or palms is considered auspicious on this day. It is believed that the darker the colour of mehndi comes on your hand, the more love you will get from your husband and in-laws.
