We normally hear in the media and even read about people who go on weekly and even longer fasts with an intention of fulfilling their personal wishes. I ask people - can we fast once a month for our nation's peace?
I READ a lot about people who are very happy that their wishes have been fulfilled and their disputes have been resolved with the grace of the God. I am also a spiritual person but sometimes one thing comes in my mind. Today, with terrorism as a big challenge, we can try to make some effort from our side.
Like I commonly see that when rain is not sufficient in monsoon people do Havan, etc., to make God happy. Likewise, it's my opinion that people should do at least one fast a month for global and the nation's peace. I am a spiritual person and I think that if we do a fast with belief in God we can achieve anything.
This way I want to convey to every citizen of India that they should add 1 day in addition to their own schedule of fasts. I am very much concerned when I hear about bomb blasts, etc. Though in a scientific era of today people don't believe in miracles. But even I am positive for the fact that there is someone who is controlling nature. It's my question to everybody - if you can do 14-15 days fast for your own wishes, why not fast once a month for the nation. Think about it and decide.
