Karva Chauth celebrations have existed since time immemorial. Though Bollywood movies have glamorized the entire ritual, this occasion has a deeper significance.
In Mahabharata, Draupadi was urged by Lord Krishna to follow Karva Chauth fast for Arjun’s protection at the battle. To upkeep the safety of their husbands, married women follow a no food, no water fast till the moon shines out. Post that, they deliver the first sip of the sacred water to the moon followed by other rituals. It is believed that couples who commit to this receive the asked blessings.
If you celebrate Karva Chauth, here are some outfit inspos by Vishnu for you to worry less and savor the day more!
