Chaturthi is a standout amongst the most anticipated celebrations for Hindus that come twice a month. Chaturthi is commended on 4 th lunar day of each month of Hindu timetable. As per the Hindu Calendar, a lunar month involves two fortnights. The fortnights can be classified into the splendid portion of the lunar month (Shukla Paksha) and the dim portion of the lunar month (Krishna Paksha). In this manner, Chaturthi (fourth day) comes twice in a month. The Chaturthi that comes in the splendid part is known as Vinayaka Chaturthi, while the Chaturthi that lands oblivious half is known as Sankashti Chaturthi.
