The festivities of Karwa Chauth are here and all the married women gear up and wait for this day with real anxiousness. Considered to be one of the prime occasions for married couples, the wife observes a no-food-no-water fast for her husband's long life and well-being. And that fast is broken at night when the full moon reaches its apex. The wife observes the moon through a sieve and then looks at her husband through it.
While the importance of Karwa Chauth is pivotal in the daily life, our Indian TV shows have proved that the occasion is equally important in fictional lives as well. On the occasion of Karwa Chauth, while the wives are observing their fast, here is a nostalgic read about how this very occasion was pivotal in several tracks of these popular TV shows.When Tanu's mission was to decode Pragya's fasting plans in 'Kumkum Bhagya'
'Kumkum Bhagya' may have been revamped in the recent times, but one cannot forget the saga of 'when-will-Tanu-get-exposed'. And Karwa Chauth played a pivotal part in that saga. Pragya (Sriti Jha) had secretly observed Karva Chauth fast for Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia). And this became Tanu's (Leena Jumani) prime motive and she came up with innumerable ways of trying to decode this mystery and expose Pragya's lie.When love was way too complicated for Swara, Ragini, Sanskar and Lakshya in 'Swaragini'
Karwa Chauth became a love test for the quadruple Swara (Helly Shah), Ragini (Tejasswi Prakash Wayangankar), Sanskaar (Varun Kapoor) and Lakshya (Namish Taneja). However, it was a little too complicated than expected. While Sanskar fasted for Swara, Ragini fasted for Lakshya. However, at this stage in their lives, Swara was yet to accept Sanskar and Lakshya was mad at Ragini for separating him from Swara and faking a memory loss.When Akshara was forced to skip her 'sargi' in 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai'
It was happy times for Naitik (Karan Mehra) and Akshara (Hina Khan) as Akshara was gearing up for Karwa Chauth celebrations just like every year. However, our dear Akshara had to skip her 'sargi' and leave with her husband, when Naitik came and told her about the shortage of workers at the factory. As known to all, 'sargi' is an important component of the occasion, where the wife has the food presented in sargi. This is also the only food that the wife consumes, before breaking her fast at the night after seeing the moon.

Sid (Ravi Dubey) and Roshni's (Nia Sharma) love story went through a lot of turbulence and Karwa Chauth was one of the turning points for the couple for sure.

When Ishita did a NEVER DONE BEFORE kind of Karwa Chauth for Raman in 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein'
Karwa Chauth was spooky and shocking in 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein' when a possessed Ishita had observed a fast for Raman.

A possessed Ishita went berserk and it was drama galore.
When Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee) will get nostalgic about Ahem (Mohammad Nazim) in 'Saath Nibhana Saathiya'
Here we decided to add the most recent track of 'Saath Nibhana Saathiya', where Karva Chauth will change the dimensions of Gopi and Jaggi's relationshi. Jaggi (Mohammad Nazim) has observed a fast for Gopi as he is in love with her. However, karwa chauth means nostalgia for Gopi, who would reminisce moments she spent with her husband Ahem during their previous Karwa Chauth together. Also, as Jaggi cannot ask Gopi to break his fast directly, he fakes weakness and pretends to faint and a concerned Gopi, makes him drink water, thus indirectly breaking his fast.
