Karwa Chauth- A fast dedicated to goddess Parvati
Karwa Chauth is an important fast devoted to the goddess Parvati. Married women on this auspicious day observe fast for their husbands and worship the imperial goddess Parvati. 

Significance of Karwa Chauth
Karwa Chauth is a very significant festival observed in the Kartik month of the Hindu lunar calendar. The popular legend linked with Karwa Chauth includes Veeravati. Once Veeravati kept a fast for the long life of her husband, who went on the battlefield. She decided to open the fast by seeing the moon as per the rituals. Veeravati's seven brothers tricked her by placing a mirror strategically so that it looked like the moon. They did so because they loved her sister immensely and couldn't see her hungry. Veeravati got tricked, and soon, she broke her fast, which resulted in the immediate death of her husband. When Veeravati learned that her husband was no more, she was shattered. Then, goddess Parvati emerged and told her what her brothers did and that she didn't break her fast knowingly. Later, with the goddess' blessings, Yama, Lord of death, released Veeravati's husband from the clutches of death.
