Upwas marathi recipe| vrat ka khana| falahari fasting dishes


Keeping a fast is an integral part of the Indian culture and tradition. It basically connotes willingly abstaining oneself from eating certain or any kind of food, drink or both.

 It is known as Vrat in hindi & upwas in marathi . The period of fasting also varies i.e. it could be partial or prolong for 24 hours.

 Though people in India may keep a fast for varied reasons, the most important ones pertain to religion and spiritual aspects.

One is expected to live piously, give charity and refrain from eating non-vegetarian food whenever observing fast for a spiritual or religious purpose in India. Our religious scriptures state fasting is not only a part of worship, but a great instrument for inculcating self-discipline too.

Apart from certain Hindu festivals like Shivratri,navratri ,ramzan,shravan,angariki chaturthi , Karva Chauth and so on, there are specific days on which Indians keep fast from varied reasons.
For instance, people fast on Tuesdays for Lord Hanuman,. On Fridays, the devotees of the Goddess Santoshi Mata abstain from taking anything citric.

 There is also another type of fasting when people forego taking all cereals and eat only fruits. Such fasting is called Phalahar. However, there are many others who keep a fast solely for maintaining good health.

People also fast these days for health reasons because fasting helps in the detoxification of the body. Everyone wants to look good and fit these days. As such, you will find many youngsters in India fasting. In medical context, fasting refers to the state achieved after digestion of a meal.A number of metabolic adjustments occur during fasting and many medical diagnostic tests are standardized to fasting conditions. Thus fasting has both religious and medical significance in India.
