This painting represents the final phase of the Karwa-chautha ritual, a festival of married Hindu women, extremely popular in India, involving primarily a daylong fast, which they observe for their husbands’ long life and prosperity. The fast accomplishes after the moon rises and the women on fast behold it and make offerings.

As is obvious, Karwa-chautha, the festival name, combines two terms, ‘karwa’, that is, a pot with spout, initially earthen but now more often cast of sugar, and ‘chautha’, the fourth day, that is, the fourth day of one of the months to which ‘karwa’ imparts distinction of a festival. This specific ‘chautha’ falls in the first half, that is, the dark half, of the month of Kartika, broadly the period around mid-October. Those observing Karwa-chautha-related austerities would rise early in the morning when it is still dark, bathe and take some light food and keep the fast for the rest of day. The day is a normal one except that they spent some time in collecting ritual articles, especially the ‘karwa’, which they will decorate with variously coloured paste of rice and will worship Shiva and Parvati, the model of ideal happy family.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
