In Indian culture, Vat Savitri has been given importance just like Karwa Chauth. After completing Vat Savitri fast, Savitri defeated Yamraj to save her husband Satyavan’s life. In India, Vat Savitri fast will take place on May 15, 2018. The fast is observed by married women for longevity and well-being of their husbands. Married women have to perform the puja under the banyan tree. They have to take bath in morning and get ready just like newly-wed bride and arrange a plate with jaggery, chickpeas flour sweets, vermilion, sacred thread, five types of fruits, betel leaves, dhoop diya, water in jug and handmade fan and go under a banyan tree, pour water in the roots of the tree, offer bhog and light a dhoop diya. After performing this, women have to pray for longevity and well-being of their husbands. After completing it, they have to waive a handmade fan around the banyan tree and then take blessings from mother Savitri, again for the longevity of husband’s life. After the prayer, they have to tie a sacred thread around the banyan tree seven times and pray. After completing the rituals, they must return home and wash the feet of a husband with water and take his blessing. After doing this, the women can break their fast, even though there are women who keep fast for the entire day and break their fast after sunset.
