Noli Nom Vrat is observed in Shravan month in
Gujarat and the vrat is mainly performed by childless
couples. Noli Nom 2016 date is August 12. It is observed on the ninth day during
the Shukla Paksha or waxing phase of moon in Gujarati Sawan month. The story
that is listened to during Noli Nom Vrat is quite similar to the Sheetala Satam
Vrat observed later in the same month.
On the Noli Nom day, the husband and wife fast from morning to evening. At night they take food together.
The Vrat is continued annually on the same day till the couple gets a child.
