Why do women observe Gangaur fast and worship secretly?
According to the legend, once Mother Parvati fasted and worshiped for Lord Shiva. But she did not want to tell Bholenath about it. Lord Shiva tried hard to tell, but Mother Parvati did not talk about it. She wanted to observe that fast secretly.

Because of this, every year women observe Gangaur fast and puja secretly from their husbands. Even the prasad offered during this fast and puja is not allowed to be eaten by her husband.

Gangaur Puja
Gangaur is related to Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati. Gana means Shiva and Gaur means Gauri. Therefore, in this fast we worship Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati. By worshiping Shiva and Gauri, women are blessed with unbroken good fortune and happy married life.
