Modi starts Navratri fast with this message

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday sent out greetings on the beginning of the festival of Navratri. Modi, who is leaving for New York in the evening, is observing a Navratri fast, like millions across the country.

“As the auspicious festival of Navratri begins, I convey my warm greetings to everyone. We bow to Maa Jagdamba and seek her blessings. May Maa Jagdamba enrich our lives with strength, well-being, good health and may she keep inspiring us to serve the poorest of the poor,” he said.

Modi will be on a liquid diet and consume lemonade with some honey and a cup of tea every day while he is touring the US during the fast.
