Navaratri is one of the ultimate Hindu festivals. It indicates the success of good over evil. Navratri takes place at the beginning of October around harvest time and, as the name indicates, this festival is celebrated for nine days. Navratri is also known as Durga Puja.

During this period, Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati are worshipped as three different indicators of Shakti, or cosmic energy. The festival is dedicated to Durga, the mother goddess who also signifies power. Durga defeated the genius Mahishasura after a relentless battle lasting nine days and nights.

The celebrations of Navratri begin today, and while we all are set to welcome Maa Durga in her various forms by seeing a fast for 9 days. The misunderstanding that fasting is unhealthy, should tell you that until and unless you starve yourself in the name of it, fasting is actually good for the body.
