Owl, as per the ancient Indian Mythology, is a carrier of Goddess Lakshami.
Once, annoyed with her, the Owl rued: Lakshami Mata, the whole world worships you but no one pays any attention to me, the being that literally transports prosperity to their homes.
Your grouse is quite justified, dear Owl said the Goddess. Henceforth, one day in a year, exactly ten days after the DUSSEHRA, the whole world shall worship Owls for the entire day, she ordained.

Hence came KARVA CHAUTH, females keep fast in honour of one OWL

It is a time when females fast and pray for the long life and prosperity of their husbands. Unmarried females sometimes observe the fast for the sake of a future husband.
