Karwa Chauth Puja Muhurat has arrived and women dressed in red have started gathering in neighbourhood parks. Masks are a special accessory this year as a safety measure against Covid-19. Karwa Chauth puja time ends at 6:39 pm today. According to tradition Karwa Chauth Vrat Katha will be read together. It is a beautiful sight as women in colourful clothes sit in a circle with their Karwa Chauth Thalis to pray for their husbands’ wellbeing. The tinkling of bangles and mhendi on women’s hands have added cheer amid the gloomy pandemic.
Karwa Chauth wishes and greetings are pouring in on Twitter.
