The practice of seeing the moon with such a sieve started

A moneylender is said to have had 7 sons and a daughter. Once the moneylender’s daughter observed karva chauth fast for her

husband’s longevity. But his condition began to deteriorate due to hunger. The seven brothers loved their only sister very much. He

did not see the condition of the sister. Before the moon came out, he placed a burning lamp behind the sieve under the cover of a

tree and said to his sister that the moon had come out. The sister took the light of the lamp in the sieve as the moon and opened

her fast by giving it a longitude. The brothers fraudulently opened their fourth fast. This angered Karwa Mata and soon her husband died
