In Hinduism, Karwa Chauth has a greater significance for women. Karwa Chauth is traditionally known as Karak Chaturthi. According to Hindu Panchang, on the Chaturthi Tithi of Krishna Paksh in the Kartik month (as per the Purnimant Calendar) or in Ashwin month (as per the Amavasyant Calendar), the Karwa Chauth fast is kept. This year, Krishna Paksh Chaturthi falls on Sunday, October 24. On this day, married women wake up before sunrise and, after eating Sargi, keep a Nirjala Vrat for the whole day. This fast is kept for the long and healthy life of the husband. In the night, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are worshipped, and women pray for a healthy, long, and illness-free life for their husbands. The women's fast is completed after seeing the moon according to some respective rituals. After five years, a special yog is on this Karwa Chauth. This time, pujan will be done in Rohini Nakstra, and because it is Sunday, women will be blessed by the Lord Sun too. Although this occasion is mainly for married women, unmarried women also celebrate it.
