Karva Chauth / Karwa Chauth, one of the Hindu festival, is a fasting ritual observed by all married Hindu women who seek the longevity, prosperity and well-being of their husbands. This festival is very popular amongst Hindus in the western and northern parts of India. Normally, women who observe this festival are called "Saubhagyavati" meaning "joyous and happy status of wifehood."
Karva means clay pot while chauth means fourth. Karwa chauth commemorates the fourth day that follows the full moon in the Kartik month of the Hindu calendar.
