On this day, wives fast for the long and prosperous life of their husbands. The festival’s history is rooted in Hindu mythology, and women worship Lord Shiva and break their fast only after sighting and making offerings to the moon. The fasting period is believed to be extremely strict and one is expected to not even drink water for its duration.

The festival gets its name from ‘karwa‘ or ‘karak‘, which refers to the earthen pot through which water offering — know as argha — is made to the moon — one of the most important celestial bodies per Hindu mythology. Later, the karwa is given away to other eligible women.
