Karwa Chauth, literally the Indian Valentine’s Day, signifies the selfless, timeless bond of love between a husband and a wife. Widely celebrated in India, it is an important day for married women. The tradition of this day goes all the way back to the ancient times. In fact, among the most famous legends of Karwa Chauth is the story of Satyavan and Savitri. When Lord Yama came to take away Satyavan’s soul, Savitri begged him to grant him life. When he refused, she started fasting and followed Yama who carried away her dead husband. Yama said that she could ask for any other boon except for her husband’s life. Savitri asked that she to be blessed with children. Yama agreed. Being a “‘Pati-Vrat'” (devoted) wife, Savitri would not have children with any other man. Yama was left with no other choice but to restore Savitri’s husband to life.
On this auspicious day the wife observes a fast for the longevity of her marital life. In spite of being one of the toughest fast, Karwa Chauth is always looked forward & welcomed by married woman with great fervour. One of the reasons for that is the chance of receiving expensive & beautiful gifts from their relatives, especially their spouse.
