2020 Karwa Chauth
Karva Chauth fasting is in the month of Kartik during Krishnapaksha Chaturthi and in Gujarat, Maharashtra and South India it is present in the month of Ashwin, Kriya Chauth.
The day of worship for Ganesha was observed in association with Karwa Chauth Sankashti Chaturthi. The fast of Karwa Chauth and its rituals are observed by married women for the longevity of the husband. Married women worship Shiva and his family, including Ganesha, and break the fast after seeing the moon and offering the moon. The fast of Karwa Chauth is strictly observed and no food or drops of water should be eaten after sunrise until the moon is seen at night.
Karwa Chauth Day is also known as Karak Chaturthi (करक चतुर्थी). Karwa or Karak refers to the earthen vessel through which the water form known as Argha (अर्घ) is formed on the moon. Karwa is very significant during the puja and it is given to a Brahmin or a suitable woman as a dan.
