Chhath Puja is dedicated to the Sun god, the source of energy. It is a four-day festival that is being celebrated from October 31 to November 3 this year. On Chhath Puja, women perform the morning puja by standing in a water body and offering water to the Sun and Chhathi Maiyya, believed to be Sun’s sister. The Chhath Puja begins with certain rituals and practices that involve Nahay Khay, followed by Lohanda and Kharna, Sandhya Argh and Suryodaya. The festival holds special significance for childless couples as it is believed that if a couple fasts on Chhath Puja, they will be blessed with a child. The festival is celebrated in Bihar and parts of Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and West Bengal. The first sun ray is called Usha and last sun ray is called Pratyusha. Both these sun rays are considered auspicious and worshipped during Chhath Puja.
