Shops in many cities in North India are crowded as married women are gearing up for Karva Chauth 2018, which falls on October 27 this year. On this day, it is a custom to fast for the long life of your husband till you see the moon at night. Women not only remain hungry the entire day, but also thirsty in this hot and humid weather.

However, over the last few years, thanks to Bollywood romantic movies, the craze for Karwa Chauth has increased, and it has become immensely popular. Women like to keep it, not only because it is a tradition, but also love being pampered by their husbands. Karwa Chauth 2018 Date in India: When to Keep Karva Chauth Vrat?
