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 calendar. As indicated by the Hindu Calendar, a lunar month involves two fortnights. The fortnights can be arranged into the Bright portion of the lunar month (Shukla Paksha) and the dull portion of the lunar month (Krishna Paksha). Along these lines, Chaturthi (fourth day) comes twice in a month. The Chaturthi that comes in the bright part is known as Vinayaka Chaturthi, while the Chaturthi that touches base oblivious half is known as Sankashti Chaturthi.
