Sakat Chauth : Mothers fast for their kids for good fortune and wealth
This day is also called Sankat Haran Chauth. Sankat means trouble, Haran means to take it off. So by keeping fast on this day all kinds of problems are removed. Today is the day when Lord Ganesh and Moon is worshiped. This day is also known as Ganesh Chauth, Mahi chauth or Tilkuta Chauth. Til Ladoos (made from sesame seeds and jaggery) are the specialty of this day which are prepared by the mothers.
