Karwa Chauth is also called Karak Chaturthi. This festival coincides with the festival of Sankashti Chaturthi – a day that is dedicated to worship Lord Ganesha. For Karwa Chauth, married women offer prayers to Lord Shiva. They wake up early morning and consume a meal named sargi that is traditionally prepared by their mother in law.
