Karwa chauth katha in english

A very long time ago, a brahmin named Vedsharma lived in the city of Indraprasthapur. He had seven sons and one daughter named Veeravati. She was pampered by her parents as also her brothers who loved her very much. When the time came and she attained youth, she got married.

Once Veeravati came to her maternal home and kept fast for her husband on Karva Chauth. When all the brothers sat down to eat, they asked their sister to have food too. But the sister said that today is my Karva Chauth fast and I will eat food only after offering water to the moon.

The brothers could not bear the condition of their sister who even fainted due to weakness. The brothers made a plan to trick her into eating food. They lit a lamp on a tree away from the house and one brother stood with the sieve in front of the lamp to make it look like a moon.

Veeravati’s brothers told her that the moon has come out and she can offer water to the moon and open her fast. Her sisters-in-law tried to tell her that this is not the moon and is rather a trick by her brothers. But she did not believe them and instead believing her brothers, offered Argh and opened her fast.

When she started having her meal, many bad omens happened. She found hair in her first bite and sneezed as soon as she picked up the second bite. By the time she picked up the third bite, she got a message from her in-laws to return home immediately. On reaching her home, she found her husband lifeless.

She started crying and blamed herself for committing some mistakes while fasting. Her mourning melted the heart of Goddess Indrani who came to console her. She told Veeravati about the mistake she did unknowingly and advised her to observe fast on Chauth (the fourth day) of every month till the Karwa Chauth. She did exactly that and followed all rituals. On the day of Karwa Chauth next year, she kept a fast and followed all rituals with full devotion. By the blessings of Maa Parvati, her husband got out of his deep sleep.

Like Veeravati, all married women who fast on this day with full devotion are blessed by Maa Parvati to enjoy a long and happy married life.
