Karva Chauth Moon in Rome Karva Chauth is a festival celebrated by women in North India on the fourth day of the dark fortnight in the month of 'Kartik' (according to Hindu calender). On this day, women fast for the whole day until the appearance of Karwa Chauth Moon. They see the moon, worship it, see their husband's face through a sieve and break their day-long fast. This ritual is believed to be for the safety, welfare & ling-life of husbands. In 2011, my wife celebrated this festival while we were in Rome with our daughter. Beauty of 'Karva Chauth Moon' was captured on my DSLR (550 D) through 70-300 mm L telephoto zoom. Comments & suggestions are solicited
