Karwa Chauth: Women wait to see the moon through a sieve

Karwa Chauth is celebrated with a lot of fun, gaiety and enthusiasm across North India. This year Karwa Chauth will be celebrated by married Hindu woman on Saturday. The festival is observed on the Krishna Paksha Chaturthi in the month of Kartik as per the Hindu calendar. According to Mahabharata, Karwa Chauth can be traced back to the time when Savitri begged the god of death, Lord Yama, for her husband’s soul.
