Karwa pot with a spout symbolizes peace and prosperity and is used in the Karva chauth rituals. Shiva, Parvati and their son Kartikeya are worshiped on this day along with the 10 karwa pots filled with sweets. The Karwas are given to daughters and sisters along with gifts.
Karwachauth is celebrated every year by Hindu married women. Married women fast from sunrise to moonrise to pray for the safety and long-life of their husbands. It is celebrated on the fourth day of the new moon in the Hindu Lunar calendar in the month of Karthik.
In the evening, women dress up in special clothes, usually a red or pink sari or 'lehenga-choli' with gold woven 'zari' patterns. New brides often wear their bridal costume. All deck up in jewelry and wear 'mehendi' or henna patterns especially on the hands. Decorative 'bindis' on the forehead are a must for all women taking part in this celebration. Fasting women from all over the neighborhood gather in a group and narrate mythological stories that underscore the significance of Karwa Chauth. And, of course, all wives expect lavish gifts from their husbands!
The fast of Karwa Chawth truly sets the merry tone of the fun and frolic, festivity and feasting that come in good measure.
