Folklore tells us a story of how, on this day, women fasted for their husbands’ safety as they went off to fight valiantly in war. It romanticizes the sacrifice women made for their significant others and prayed for their wellbeing. Karwa Chauth in this day and age has manifested itself in the form of women keeping daylong fasts, praying for their husbands’ long life and only breaking it after watching the moon out of a sieve.
Karwa Chauth is a special time in a woman’s life. It is her way of professing her undying love for her husband. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t look glamorous while doing it. Her “shringar” is a very important part of the ordeal. She has to be dressed up and decked out, for what was considered “a last romantic night” before her husband went into war. The traditions have changed, however the legacy carries on.
