Date, Puja Timings, Significance, Celebrations And Feast

India boasts of an array of significant festivals, of which Karwa Chauth marks one important celebration for the married women folk of the country; it will be celebrated on 27th October. The festival falls on the fourth day after the full moon (Purnima), which is Krishna Paksha Chaturthi in the month of Kartik as per the Hindu lunar calendar. The festival is celebrated by married women, especially residing in the Northern regions of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana. Married women are said to observe a nirjala fast for the safety and longevity of their husbands. Unmarried women, too, celebrate this festival for their prospective grooms.


Karwa Chauth 2018 Significance and History


On the day of Karwa Chauth, women observe a nirjala fast (without food and water) to pray for the long life of their husbands. After having observed fast through the day, women offer prayers to lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati, and Lord Kartik to bless them with a blissful life. While performing this puja, before the moon-sighting, women narrate a story about queen named Veervati. Legend has it, Veervati was the only sister among seven brothers; hence was the most loved one in the family. She was married off at a young age; her first Karwa Chauth was celebrated at her parents’ home. She followed a strict fast from sunrise, but desperately waited for the moon to appear. Seeing her thirsty and hunger-stricken, her brothers couldn’t bear any longer and thought of an idea. They created a mirror in a pipal tree and made it look like the moon had risen. Veervati mistook it as the moon and broke the fast and the moment she took a morsel in her mouth, she got a message from her servants that her husband was dead. Heartbroken, she wept all night long until a goddess appeared in front of her and asked her about her misery. When Veervati told the goddess, she asked her to observe the Karwa Chauth fast again with dedication and devotion to see her husband alive. Veervati followed her instructions and observed a fast again. Seeing this dedication, Yama, the god of death, was forced to bring her husband back to life.

Karwa Chauth 2018 Celebrations and Feast

Married women wake up early in the morning (at sunrise) to eat sargi– a meal prepared by their mothers-in-law. After eating sargi, women stay without water and food all day until they spot the moon in the evening. After the puja, once the moon is spotted, they tend to offer water to it to seek blessings as per the Karwa Chauth rituals. Husbands then offer water and food to their wives so they break their fast. Women wear beautiful Indian attires, apply henna or mehndi, sing songs, and exchange karwas or clay pots to their married female counterparts.

Once the fast is broken, women enjoy a delightful feast along with their families. The feast may consist of halwa, kheer, puri, mathri, meethi mathri, chhole, chaat, dahi bhalla, pulao and other scrumptious delicacies.

Fragments Of Luzia, 12,000-Year-Old Human Fossil Recovered From Burnt Brazil Museum

The fossil, nicknamed “Luzia,” was discovered in 1970 in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais (AFP)

Rio de Janeiro: 

Brazilian officials said Friday they have recovered pieces of a 12,000-year-old fossil of a neolithic woman that was among the prized artifacts in Rio de Janeiro’s burnt down National Museum.

“We found almost all of the skull and 80 percent of its fragments have been identified,” museum director Alexander Kellner said, adding that fragments of a femur were also uncovered from the ashes.

The fossil, nicknamed “Luzia,” was discovered in 1970 in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais by a French-led expedition.

A Manchester University team later did a digital face reconstruction based on the skull, which was used to model a sculpture of the ancient woman.

That sculpture went up in flames on September 2 along with most of the museum’s 20 million artifacts. But the original skull fragments, kept in a metal urn in a closet, were found a few days ago.

“They’ve suffered alterations, damage. But we’re very optimistic at the find and all it represents,” said Claudia Rodrigues, a professor at the museum who has been picking through the debris.

The 200-year-old institution was considered the main natural history museum in Latin America, and was known for its paleontology department and its 26,000 fossils.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

A 38-year-old woman allegedly killed a 16-year-old domestic help for demanding salary (Representational)

New Delhi: 

A 38-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly killing a 16-year-old domestic help after she demanded her salary, police said Friday.

The girl’s decapitated head and chopped off limbs were found inside a drain in outer Delhi on May 4, they said.

During a search operation to recover the remaining body parts of the girl, the police found the torso and chopped off arms of the victim in a bag, the police said.

One person, identified as Manjit, was arrested by the police while co-accused Shalu alias Sharu, Rakesh and Gauri continued to be at large.

They were declared as proclaimed offenders and a reward of Rs 50,000 each was declared on their arrest.

On October 18, the police learnt that Gauri, a native of West Bengal, had married one Kartar Singh to camouflage her identity, and was living in Ratta Khera of Jind district in Haryana, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Sanjeev Kumar Yadav.

The woman was subsequently arrested, he said.

Gauri was running a placement agency in Delhi and the victim was brought from Jharkhand to work as a maid but her salary was not given to her for a year, the DCP said.

When the victim demanded her salary, the woman killed her, he added.

Shivashish Mishra Is The New Captain Of The House

New Delhi: 

Bigg Boss announced the new captaincy task sansani khez khulasa in last night’s episode, which definitely brought in some spice to the game. In today’s episode, the contestants continued with the second phase of the task. The Bigg Boss house found its new captain, Shivashish Mishra, who managed to get a strong lead over Deepak Thakur (with whom he was competing in the captaincy task). Post the captaincy task winner was announced, Dipika Kakar made a shocking revelation. Dipika revealed that she saved herself from “casting couch”. Surbhi rants about Sresanth to Deepak and calls him a “terrible person.” She later gets into a fight with Deepak, Romil, Sreesanth, Saurabh and Jasleen. After the fight, Surbhi breaks down in the washroom where Khan sisters and Srishty rode come to console her.

It was also time for the Kalkhothri nominations and most of the contestants have Surbhi’s name on their minds. Jasleen and Shivashish have a discussion over who they should be nominating for the Kaalkothri. Surbhi nominates Jasleen while The Khan sisters, Jasleen and Deepak nominate her. Karanvir Bohra nominates Romil for Kaalkothri.

The twist in the tale arrives when Bigg Boss announces that Shivashish, as captain, has a special power. Using his power Shivashish can save someone and instead send someone else to Kaalkothri. Without second thoughts, Shivashish saves Romil and sends Dipika in his place. Dipika, Sreesanth and Surbhi are sent to the Kaalkothri but the decision does not go down well with Sreesanth.

Two Members Of Khalistani Module Arrested In Amritsar

Initial investigations revealed that they were receiving funds from overseas (Representational)


The Punjab Police on Friday arrested two members of a Khalistani module who were allegedly engaged in propagating the ‘Referendum 2020’ campaign by affixing banners and posters in public places in Amritsar.

‘Referendum 2020’ is a campaign that seeks to garner support for a separate state for Sikhs — Khalistan.

The accused were identified as Sukhraj Singh alias Raju and Malkit Singh alias Meetu, the police said.

Information was received from reliable sources by Commissionerate Police Amritsar about a campaign being run to disseminate the message of ‘Referendum 2020’ by putting up banners and posters in various public places, a police spokesperson said.

It was found that Sukhraj, a resident of Tarn Taran’s village Nagoke, was making the banners and posters at his residence along with his associate Malkit, a resident of Amritsar, he said.

Initial investigations revealed that they were receiving funds from overseas as part of the campaign started by Gurpartap Singh Pannu, legal advisor of Sikh for Justice — a New York-based organisation, he added.

Dyes, banners and paint were recovered during a raid on Sukhraj’s residence.

Some more material was recovered from an under-construction bridge at Kot Mit Singh Canal, where the duo had affixed banners, the police spokesperson said.

Sukhraj, who is unemployed, told police that he has been associated with the SFJ for the past one year and had put up the posters at various places.

For this, he was being paid installments of Rs 25,000-50,000, and had so far received Rs 2 lakh, the spokesperson said.

He usually received the money through Hawala channels and occasionally through accounts of other persons, he added.

Malkit reportedly worked as a bus conductor.

A case has been registered at Sultanwind police station in Amritsar and the two accused have been booked under relevant sections of the IPC, the spokesperson said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Says With Stubble Burning Delhi Will Become Gas Chamber

AAP government had made several efforts which improved Delhi’s air quality: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said the city would soon turn into a “gas chamber” as the central, Punjab and Haryana governments were doing “absolutely nothing” for the farmers burning paddy straw.

The national capital’s air quality has deteriorated over the last week. Stubble burning in neighbouring states is one of the major reasons behind increasing air pollution levels in Delhi.

“V sad that Central, Punjab and Haryana Govts did absolutely nothing for the farmers. As a result, the farmers will suffer on one hand and Delhi will become a gas chamber soon (sic),” Mr Kejriwal tweeted.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday appealed to the Centre and the governments of Haryana and Punjab to initiate measures in the wake of the deteriorating air quality in north India, including Delhi.

“The Centre should intervene. Farmers have not been given subsidy. This is the failure on the part of the central and the state governments. As December and January is nearing, the entire north India, including Delhi, is close to becoming a gas chamber,” Mr Sisodia had said.

He also said the AAP government had made several efforts which improved Delhi’s air quality and had requested the Centre, as well as the governments of Punjab and Haryana, to take measures in this regard, but the air quality has deteriorated despite assurances.

Ayushmann Khurrana Says He Has Been ‘Lucky To Have Got The Right Films’

New Delhi: 

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, whose recently released film Badhaai Ho opened to overwhelming response at the box office, told news agency IANS that he has been “lucky enough” in his journey to have got the right films and also thanked directors for believing in him. “As an artiste, I have always backed concepts, filmmakers who were doing clutter breaking work. I think I have been lucky enough in my journey to have got the right films and I’m thankful to all my filmmakers for believing in me,” IANS quoted Ayushmann Khurrana as saying. Badhaai Ho, which also stars Neena Gupta, Sanya Malhotra and Gajraj Rao raked in Rs 7.29 crore on the opening day. Ayushmann added that he is “overwhelmed” and “humbled” with the response Badhaai Ho has been getting. “It is an overwhelming and a humbling moment for me as an actor.”

Ayushmann Khurrana, who made his Bollywood debut with Shoojit Sircar’s 2012 film Vicky Donor, told IANS that whenever somebody approaches him with a script, he tries to analyse whether as an audience he would like to watch it. “If a film is not watched and enjoyed and endorsed by audience, it is not a success. So, the rules don’t change even if it’s a content film. Whenever I get a script in my hand, I think from the position of whether I would want to watch this film as an audience,” he said.

Ayushmann said that success of his films “motivates” him to do better work. “It motivates me to do better work, to scout for better scripts and to be disruptive yet entertaining. I always go with my instinct and my reading of audience. So far and thankfully, more often than not, I have got the right answers. This reward is extremely gratifying for me because it teaches me that I’m choosing the right films,” Ayushmann said.

Sriram Raghavan-directed murder mystery AndhaDhun, which released earlier this month, featured Ayushmann Khurrana , Tabu and Radhika Apte. The film garnered close to Rs 50 crores in two weeks. In the movie, Ayushmann plays the role of visually impaired musician.
