First Karwa Chauth: amazing experience

HELLO FRIENDS,

Hey this is my blog regarding karwa chauth. It’s a one-day festival – celebrated by most women in India – in which married women fast all day long for the safety and longevity of their husbands. Though you may find number of information and details regarding its procedure on internet but still i wanna share this experience of my with you all. This was my first karwa chauth and above all i am living in USA, so it really become hectic for me even to understand the importance, procedure, and all required information about this fasting. I guess its been a month that i was searching and asking family members for required information about this one day karwa chauth but at the end i feel good to perform this festival in my best way.

This blog will be helpful for those who either living abroad or living alone. Anyway all you need is:

  • Karva Chauth Calendar (luckily which my mother-in-Law kept in my bag when i came here in USA).
  • Decorated Karva (again this one also i brought from India, but inspite of Mud pot i brought a steel karva).
  • Karwa chauth katha, karwa chauth vrat sankalph mantra, ganesh and shiv arti (from internet).
  • Steel sieve
  • Dress and accessories must be ready a day before.
  • Apply heena  on hands a day before

On the day of my fasting:

  • Wake up in morning and take bath.
  • Dressed in saree.
  • Take karwa chauth vrat sankalph- “मम सुखसौभाग्य पुत्रपौत्रादि सुस्थिर श्री प्राप्तये करक चतुर्थी व्रतमहं करिष्ये।”
  • At about 12:30 pm, i did the katha but one thing you required is dont do karwa chauth katha alone, as in my case i did this katha with my husband. While reading katha hold a coin and kush (Halfa) grass in your hand, which later you will tie in your saree pallu after you finished with katha. Another important thing is dont blow diya while reading katha. Simply you can do this katha at a clean worship place.
  • After vrat katha i had some tea and fruits. Well some use to keep Nirjala fast (without even water till they see the moon) but i think this should be as your family trend.
  • Now at this point i changed my dress because its cooking time: Halwa, puri, Kardhi, rice, potatoes, pumpkin, Barfi.
  •  At 6:00 pm done all Pooja arragements.
  • At 7:30 pm, again i wear my saree for evening pooja.

Evening time:

  • By 8:30 pm done with my pooja, now waiting for moon to come.
  • Hurray!!!!!!!!!!!! i can see the Moon now at 10:00 pm.
  • Worshiped Moon with diya, karwa water and that kush grass. First saw Moon and then my husband through steel sieve.
  • Finally my husband open my fast with water.

Happy Karwa Chauth!!!
