Karva Chauth is a festival that every Hindu woman looks forward to. The womenfolk pray for safety and well-being of husbands. Karva Chauth is the day that symbolizes this love and devotion of an Hindu woman towards her husband. On this day she fasts the entire day without even a sip of water, until the moon appears which is when her husband feeds her the first morsel of food. She does this as a prayer to her husband’s protection and long life. Even some unmarried women or girls keep this fast in prayer of a good husband.
