Ganesh Chaturthi Special Alphabate; A to Z

Ganesh Chaturthi Special Alphabate; A to Z


The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi or Ganesh Choth is celebrated on Vikram Samvat's Bhadarva Sud 9, this auspicious day is considered to be Ganeshji's birthday. The festival is also known as Vinayak Chaturthi or Vinayak Chavathi in Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada, Vinayak Chavathi in Konkani and Vinayak Chatha in Nepali.

This festival lasts for 10 days which ends on the day of Anant Chaturthi.
































The moon is specially worshiped on Karva Choth. Women break their fast by looking at the moon through a sieve. Every year women follow this tradition. But you may need to think about why the fast is broken by looking at the moon in the fourth chow. There is a special significance behind this.

There is a legend behind watching the election on the evening of Karva Choth. The story of a lender has been around since ancient times. The wife of the lender kept the fourth vow of Karva for the longevity of her husband. But his health began to decline due to hunger. The lender had seven sons. The lender's sons asked the sister to eat, but the lender's daughter refused to eat. Then his health began to decline.


















The brothers could not see the sister's condition. They then showed the false moon to the sister by placing a lamp behind a sieve in a tree bar just before the moon rose. The sister opened the fast believing it to be true. Her husband died after breaking the fast. It is said that her husband died because of breaking the fast without seeing the real moon.

Just after that, the tradition of breaking the fast of Choth to see one's husband started only after seeing the moon with a sieve in hand. So that no one can break the fast by deception.
