Karwa Chowth in Sydney

Today, 27 October, is Karwa Chowth, which many Indian women, especially from the northern India, celebrate.

There are many such ceremonies going on in Sydney too.

This festival celebrated by women in Kartik month of the Hindu Calendar. Women hold a fast, followed by prayers for the long life of their husbands. From dawn, women spend time in company of other women, family and friends. Fasting women assemble in a common place as part of the ceremony, involving storytelling and singing and worshipping. As the moon rises, women traditionally view the moon through a sieve or veil. This can also be done by the reflection of the moon on water. Prayers for the husband’s life and health is offered as the concluding part of the ceremony.
