Trendy touch to the traditional festival of Karwa Chauth
The significance of Karwa Chauth has increased in recent years, and it is becoming popular among the modern and educated ladies. This festival has become a mode of expressing love to your fiancee or husband. Now, this Vrat or fast is not single-sided, and both husband and wife are fasting for each others' well being.
KARWA CHAUTH which is an important fast, is observed mainly by the married Hindu women in North India. It is a Vrat that is undertaken for the prosperity, welfare, longevity and well being of their husband. Usually, Karwa Chauth is celebrated on the fourth day of Krishna paksha in the month of 'Kartik'. This time, it is falling on 2nd November, and the astrologers have said that three auspicious occasions mark this Karwa Chauth as even more auspicious.
Karwa Chauth improves the relationship between a couple and also gives monetary benefits. This time the Moon and Jupiter are in Taurus and this has made the auspicious occasion more important. These planetary situations bring happiness, harmony and love to married life. Karwa Chauth is falling in Mrigshira Nakshatra this time and Mars rules this Nakshatra, and this situation makes it Lakshmi Yoga, which will help in improving one's financial situation.
This year, Karwa Chauth is going trendy while keeping traditionas intact. The Banarsi Sarees have been replaced by the netted saris, anarkalis and lehangas. If you are not comfortable with the heavy Banarsi sari you can wear a lehenga or sari with ornate work. Give your outfit a nice traditional touch with the neck jewelry you wear, the hanging swarovski-studded earring and matching bangles complete the classy look.
Make your Karwa Chauth more trendy and traditional by opting for a decorative nail art instead of a mahendi. And finally make your Karwa Chauth fasting healthy by eating a healthy and good enough meal before dawn breaks so that it will prepare you for the day. The food items should include foods that are slowly absorbed by the body and gradually release energy. And when you break the fast in the evening, start with some coconut water followed by some rotis or khichri. Try to avoid deep fried food.
