The preparation of Karwa Chauth actually begins quite early. Preparing a special basket of healthy and delicious food, called Sargi, is a traditional part of the celebration for those observing the fast. People who keep the Karwa Chauth fast often wake up before sunrise, have a bath, eat nutritious things from the Sargi and prepare for the day-long fast. While it was a fast that women only kept praying for the long life for their husbands, in recent years, partners are happily keeping this fast for each other and enjoy sharing this experience together.

We hope that this Karwa Chauth brings you and your family all the happiness you deserve. Happy Karwa Chauth 2021!
