How do we celebrate the festival of Karva Chauth?
Preparations for Karva Chauth begin several days in advance. Suhagin women buy clothes, jewelry, makeup and puja items. On the day of Karva Chauth, women eat sargi before sunrise. After this, henna is applied on the hands and feet in the morning and the plates of worship are decorated. Fasting women from the neighboring neighborhood gather in a temple, house or garden before dusk. Here all the women worship Karva Chauth together. During this time, the idol of Parvati ji with dung and yellow soil is established. Nowadays, the already prepared statue of Mata Gauri is also kept. After worshiping by law, all women listen to the story of Karva Chauth from an elderly woman. During this time, all the women worship in red pairs with sixteen adornments. Arghya is offered on the rise of the moon and the aarti of the husband is performed. The fasting of women ends by drinking water at the hands of her husband.
Sargi in Karva Chauth
Sargi also has special significance on the day of Karva Chauth. Women and girls who fast on this day wake up before sunrise and eat a sargi after taking a bath. Sargi usually prepares mother-in-law. Dry fruits, coconut, fruits and sweets are eaten in the sargi. If there is no mother-in-law, then even a big household member can make a sargi for her daughter-in-law. The girls who are observing the fast of Karva Chauth before marriage, give a sargi to her in-laws one evening. Sargi is eaten before the sun rises in the morning so that energy remains throughout the day.
