Significance of Karwa Chauth

Married women worship Chauth Mata and offer prayers to Goddess for the well-being of their husbands and seek blessings for Chauth Mata. Karwa refers to the earthen pot through which the water is offered to the Moon. The water offering to the Moon is known as Argha. All married women break their fast solely after offering Arghya to moon. The culture of applying Mehendi or henna is a main and necessary part of Karwa Chauth. In the Hindu culture, Mehendi is symbolic of good fortune for married women. Women apply Mehendi on their hands and toes on this special day of Karwa Chauth.

Sargi is considered to be the main phase of Karwa Chauth Day. Sargi is a special meal prepared which is eaten before daybreak It usually consists of seviyan or vermicelli, paranthas, fruits and all. Sargi tradition is not followed via all as this is in general followed via Punjabi community people. Women prepare delicious food on this day despite watching fast and the food is first offered to Chauth Mata.
