Years old tradition, twice in a year, for about 9 days, celebration of Shakti along with fasting. It is an abstinence from food for a day or more.
It is good for cleansing the body. Now a days usually mind is more tired than the body, so cleansing of mind also becomes an urgent necessity.
What about fasting of thoughts i.e. abstinence from thoughts irrespective of good or bad for a day, or a pahar, or an hour or at least a minute.
