Karva Chauth Vrat Katha: Seven Boys of Moneylender, Story of a Girl
A moneylender had seven boys and a girl. Once on Chaturthi Tithi of Krishna Paksha of Kartik month, his seven daughters-in-law along with Sethani and his daughter also observed Karva Chauth fast. At night, when all the moneylender boys sat down to eat, they also asked their sister to have food. On this, the sister said - Brother, the moon has not come out yet. I will eat today only after paying the moon when it comes out.
The moneylender's son loved his sister very much, he was very sad to see his sister's distraught face with hunger. The moneylender's son went outside the city and climbed a tree and burnt the fire there. On returning home, he told his sister- Look sister, the moon has come out. Now you are offering them food and take food. The moneylender's daughter said to her sisters-in-law, look, the moon has come out, you guys can also take food by offering arghya. On hearing the sister-in-law, the sisters said - Sister has not yet come to the moon, your brothers have been deceiving you by lighting fire and showing you its light in the form of moon.
The moneylender's daughter, ignoring the words of her sisters-in-law, offered food to the moon shown by the brothers and ate it. In this way, due to breaking the fast of Karva Chauth, Lord Ganesha became upset at the moneylender. Due to the unhappiness of Ganesh ji the husband of that girl fell ill and all the money left in the house was spent in her illness.
When the moneylender's daughter came to know of her faults, she was very sorry. He prayed forgiveness to Ganesha and started the fast on the Chaturthi again. He paid respects to all the people present and thereafter received his blessings.
Thus, seeing the devotion and devotion of that girl, Lord Ganesh was pleased with her and gave life to her husband. Freeing him from all kinds of diseases, made him rich in wealth, wealth and wealth.
