In the realm of Hindu mythology, Uma Chaturthi is one of the auspicious celebrations dedicating to Goddess Parvati. Uma is another name of the goddess Parvati. It is observed on the 4th day of Shukla Paksha of Jyestha Month. The festival is very popular in Odisha, Jharkhand, and Bengal.
As we know lord Shiva got married to Goddess Sati but in vehement vilification of Shiva by Daksha Prajapati, Sati had relinquished her life into the holy flame. Later, she had appeared as Parvati and tried her best to convince Shiva about her love for him. But Shiva was not interested in Parvati since he was smitten by Sati only. Parvati then had performed severe austerities to get Shiva.

Significance of Uma Chaturthi
The Uma Chaturthi Vrat is observed for married and unmarried women. The Vrat has a special significance in respect to husbands. Women who are married, follow the auspicious occasion for strengthening their bond with their husbands. They wish the eternal love to remain the same between them and their husbands.
