The Sankatahara Chaturthi is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Ganesha. It is celebrated every month on the fourth day (Chathurthi) after the full moon (Krishna Paksha) according to the Hindu calendar. Sankatahara means- Sankata (problems) and hara (removing). Thus, observing this vratam or puja is believed to reduce all the problems in a person's life because Lord Ganesha is the remover of all obstacles and problems. To invoke Lord Ganesha’s blessings, devotees observe strict fast on the day of Sankatahara Chaturthi and break the fast only at night after Sri Ganesh puja & viewing the moon (Chandra Darshan).

Shard Navratri is the most popular and significant Navratri of all Navratris. That’s why Shardiya Navratri is also known as Maha Navratri. It falls in lunar month Ashwin during Sharad Ritu. The name Shardiya Navratri has been taken from Sharad Ritu. All nine days during Navratri are dedicated to  nine forms of Goddess Shakti. Shardiya Navratri falls in the month of September or October. The nine days festivity culminates on tenth day with Dushera or Vijaya Dashami.
