KARWA CHAUTH 2022: The festival of Karwa Chauth is around the corner. Every year, it falls on the fourth day of the Kartik month in the Hindu lunisolar calendar. On this day, married Hindu women observe fast from sunrise to moonrise and pray for the longevity of their husbands. They break their fast after sighting the moon and then gazing at their husbands through a sieve with a dia.
Since the moon plays an important role in the festival, here’s when the moonrise is expected in different cities on Karwa Chauth.
