We all know about this age old tradition of Karwa Chauth in India where married women fast for the entire day without having anything to drink or eat for their husbands’ long life and the fast is completed by looking at the moonrise at night.

The popular story which has been passed for the tradition is that of Queen Veeravati and the same is narrated each time a Karwa Chauth puja is held. However, there are many versions of the story. Even though Karwa Chauth reflects an old tradition which honors the marital life in a traditional way, these days with the changing times, a shift has also been seen in the outlook towards Karwa Chauth.

On one hand, husbands also have started fasting for their wives and on the other hand, Karwa Chauth is now more about celebrating and honoring the relationship between a couple, rather than about the fast. In a positive light, it is a day to celebrate your special bond with your partner. So, whether you’re a believer in the tradition of Karwa Chauth or not, you could redefine how you want to celebrate the day depending upon the relevance it holds for you.

That is why, this article is all about redefining Karwa Chauth where we focus on celebrating your relationship with your partner through meaningful gifts and quality gestures, beyond the fasting. Moreover, usually it is the husband who gets his wife a gift on Karwa Chauth as a reciprocity of the fast, but since we are talking about the redefinition of Karwa Chauth, then why not redefine this element too?
