On the fourth day of the Chhath Puja, residents from different societies in Noida and Greater Noida celebrated it with zeal and religious fervor. Women keep Chhath fast for not only for the long life of their husbands but also their children. The vermilion also has a special significance in this fast. For this reason, after fasting, women adorn themselves with vermilion till their nose.
The first day of Chhath Puja is called Nahae Khay. On this day, the devotees take a bath and wear new clothes. The second day is called Kharna. After fasting for the whole day, in the evening, people eat kheer and roti made of jaggery. On the third day, Prasad is made for Chhath Puja. The devotees go to the pond, river, or ghat to offer arghya to the sun, and after taking a bath, they worship the setting sun. On the fourth day, at sunrise in the morning, prasad is distributed.
Residents of Noida celebrated Chhath Puja with fervour and gaiety. Pictures of devotees from across the Noida and Greater Noida societies have surfaced on the occasion.
