Karva Chauth is a very auspicious occasion for all the married women, as they fast for the long life and well-being of their husbands. It also symbolizes the love and togetherness of couples. Couples purchase online karwa chauth gifts, to express their love for each other. Traditionally, the fast was observed only by married women.
However, in modern practice, even unmarried girls observe fast to get an ideal husband. However, it is important to note that if unmarried girls are observing this strict fast of Karva Chauth, some ritual has to be followed. Here are the most important rituals to be followed by the girls or the boys who wish to fast during Karva Chauth;
1. Instead of eating the Karva Chauth Sargi, eat something filling: Sargi is any sweet dish like kheer or dry fruits, eaten by the married women before sunrise. Sargi is often offered by the mother in law as a blessing to a married woman. However, if you are an unmarried girl, you should have something filling to avoid hunger pangs you might experience throughout the day. You should also have fruit juices and plenty of water before sunrise to keep yourself hydrated.
2. End the fast on seeing the pole star: Traditionally the married women break their fast on seeing the moon rise, as unmarried girls can break the fast at the time of moonrise as soon as you see a pole star. Do not wait until the moon rises.
3. Perform a small pooja instead of an elaborated traditional pooja: It is believed that on the day of Karva Chauth, the moon is a manifestation of Lord Shiva, hence the married women seek the blessing of the moon by worshipping the moon. The pooja includes worshiping Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. They use a puja thali with channi, potli, and lota to perform the pooja. For unmarried girls, it is advised to perform a short pooja in your pooja room as soon as you see a pole star instead of worshipping the moon as married women do. A short pooja is enough to end your fast.
4. Video calling: Married women perform the pooja by worshipping the moon and by seeing their husband through a channi and end their fast. In case the husband stays away, in a different city, the women perform the entire pooja using a pooja thali with all the essentials while on a video call with their husband. If you have a partner you can do the same. Video call them as soon as you see the polar star and end your fast.
