This day is a festive celebration which honours and strengthens the bond between a husband and wife. In some places, even a husband keeps a fast for his wife in return. Women dress up, put mehendi, adorn jewellery before performing the puja. They observe a nirjala fast which means without having water and food. While breaking the fast, husbands offer a morsel of food and water to their wives. They also give some gift to the wife and thank her for observing this fast. Happy Karva Chauth 2019 Wishes For Daughter-In-Law: WhatsApp Messages, Images, Greetings, Facebook Photos & SMS to Send to Your Bahu For Karwa Chauth Vrat.
