One of the most important day of a married Women in India preaching Hinduism is KarvaChauth. On this day wives offer their prayers to god on behalf of their husband for making sure that they always stay healthy and prosper in whatever they set out to achieve. This festival is mainly celebrated in the northern region of India in the states like Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana etc. However, some parts of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and because of a number of young couples moving to cities like Chennai, Banglore, Mumbai, Hyderabad etc. this festival is celebrated here as well.
Women on this day fast for an entire day starting from sunrise up till moon rise. The fast also includes being deprived of water the whole day. Once the moon rises the husband helps their wife break her fast by offering water and a sweet.

Pre-Dawn Meals on the Day Of KarvaChauth
On the day of the festival, we would suggest you wake up a few hours before dawn and have something to eat and drink, since you will have to fast the whole day after sunrise. You can consume traditional dishes like soot feni or sargi which will help you in keeping away from water the whole day.
Henna (Mehndi), Puja and Gifts
In the morning time you should as per ritual gather with other wives who have participated in the festival and put mehndi on each other’s hands and feet and wait for the sunset. Once the sun sets you have to engage in puja and other related rituals.
As a reward for fasting the whole day the husbands have to give gifts (baya) to their wives. Diamond Jewellery is one of the best gifts you can give to your spouse and show how much you appreciate their efforts.
