Karwa Chauth, a popular Hindu festival, is celebrated predominantly in Northern India. The festival is a celebration of marriage, during which the wife fasts for the day as a prayer for a healthy and long life for her husband, or in the hopes of getting a desirable husband for themselves later on in life. The women dress up, apply henna on their hands, don’t consume even a drop of water, let alone food, until they see the moon.
Support Ethical Journalism. Support The Dispatch
The Dispatch is a sincere effort in ethical journalism. Truth, Accuracy, Independence, Fairness, Impartiality, Humanity and Accountability are key elements of our editorial policy.

As more and more media falls into corporate and political control, informed citizens across the world are funding independent journalism initiatives.
