The process of the Karwa Chauth is the same, but the newly wed- bride seems to be more cautious, because of her first time. The festive mood of this occasion starts few days before the karwa chauth as the women start purchasing new clothes and bangles for the day. The Indian bride dresses herself in new saari or suit preferably of red or maroon colour, with all the items of make- up and sola sringar. On the early morning of the Karwa Chauth, around 4'0 clock, the bride eats the sargi, given to her by her mother-in-law. This is to be done before sunrise. Sargi contains, Pheni, Mathi, and eating items, depending on the cultural practices followed by the family. After that throughout the day, the bride is not supposed to eat or drink anything. In the evening time, the Indian women, dresses like a newly wed bride and heads towards the karwa pooja. The married women are supposed to attend the karwa katha, in which an old lady narrates the story of the Karwa Chauth and tells the significance of keeping the fast.
