Karvachauth is fasted by women across the country for the long life of their husbands. Its method and rules may differ somewhat by region. But do you know that there is a village in the country where the fast of Karvachauth is not kept and it is believed that every woman who keeps this fast becomes a widow? You won't be sure to hear that but it's true. We are talking about the three villages of Karnal in Haryana, Katlahedi, Gondar, and Angad. It is said that the festival of Karva Chauth has not been celebrated in these places for a long time.


People living here believe that 'If the honeymoon women of these places do the fast of Karva Chauth then their honeymoon is devastated.' There is a story about it which tells that the families of the people living in this village are cursed. Yes, the families here are repenting of the mistake of long ago. On the other hand, if the daughters of these villages marry in another village and they observe the fast of Karva Chauth there, then nothing happens. Now let's know about the curse.


The story behind


600 years ago, the girl of Rahara was married to a young man from Gondar. The night before Karva Chauth in the maiden, she dreams that her husband has been killed and her body is hidden in Bajre's bundles. He told this to his parents. The maternal uncle brought him to Gondar on the day of Karva Chauth. When the husband was not there, he told people the dream. People say that her husband's body was lying at her place. It is said that the lady kept the fast of Karva Chauth that day, so she refused to take her older women at home if she wanted to get her done. Due to this, she got trapped in the ground along with Karva and cursed that if any daughter-in-law of this village fasted Karva Chauth in the future, her suhag would be destroyed. According to the local people, due to the incident of a curse given by the brahmin almost two hundred years ago, the women here do not put Bindi-sindoor, a symbol of honey, for one year before marriage. Due to the curse, the fast of Karva Chauth is also not celebrated here.
