Navratri: Fasting or Feasting?

Navratri is a revered Hindu festival, which is celebrated twice a year with pomp and show. One in Chaitra month (March-April) and the other in Ashwin month (October-November). This is the time where most people fast, eat, sing and dance.

This is also a time when the so called fasting becomes a massive feasting. Hearing alarm bells are we!

The amount of fried foods people eat in the name of fasting! I tell you, it’s better to avoid them altogether. People gain weight, thanks to all the fried alu, the lovely fried sabudana, and the yummy kuttu atta poori. 9- days flat!! The various ‘namkeens’ that we eat in the name of the so called fast and the ladoos. And who can forget that Special Navratri Thali served at Haldirams Really? Who are we fooling ? Is it the God’s that we are fooling? Or is it just us and our bodies that we are doing a favour?
