Fasting

Month of Ramadan brings fasting season at Aarohi, Some kids did for religious reasons, while some did for experiencing. It began with ‘i too want to do Fasting’. Soon it came as experience of temptations, control, understanding hunger and thirst and of course self.

Some of us also shared various fasting rituals in our families. We discovered some fast for religion while some do for self, So its not always good and bad about something but there are many faces of one thing.

One child expressed ‘I always looked at fast as religious purpose and did not like it, I did not know that I can fast for myself also, to know myself’.
