Narendra-modi-fasting-poojaPrime Minister Narendra Modi is a role model for many in many different aspects but no one ever thought religion and spirituality were one of them. The PM recently commenced his fast for the Hindu festival Chaitra Navratri.

This auspicious festival consists of nine days where Modi will maintain a fast with just fruits and water to sustain himself. It is considered that the nine days of fast contribute in making the body and mind pure again.

The festival begins on the first day of a new Hindu year, which is based on luni-solar calendar. During the fest, Modi avoids the intake of food in general, which include grains and pulses, along with salt. He only takes one fruit everyday with some lime juice, otherwise just drinking water all day.
