Kartik Month, as per North Indian Hindu lunar calendar. Karva Chauth Vrat
(also known as Kadva Choth) is observed by women for a happy and prosperous
married life and for the well being of the husband and is one of the most
popular fast and ritual in North India.
Karva chauth is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It is believed that Goddess Parvathi had observed severe penance to get Lord Shiva as her husband.
