The holy festival of Navratri is going to end today and in this difficult time, many people across the country will keep a fast on this festival and wish good luck for the health of the people of the country and the world. In these 9 days, people not only worship Maa Durga but also fast for 9 days.
During this time most people consume fruits. For many people, these 9 days are the time to cleanse and detoxify the body and mind, for which they follow only a fruit and liquid diet. At the same time, there are some people who keep on eating some fruits from time to time keeping in mind their health. There is nothing wrong with this because God has not said anywhere that he should be worshiped by harming himself or causing pain.
Usually, the fast-food prepared in Indian households is very rich, such as kuttu or water chestnut flour puris, fasting chips, and fruit sweets. In such a situation, after eating this kind of food for 9 consecutive days, many times we get bored or do not feel like eating them.
