13 Year Old Girl Dies after Fasting For 68 Days


A 13-year-old girl in Hyderabad died last week after fasting for 68 days as per Jain rituals during the holy period of ‘Chaumasa’. Aradhana, a class 8 student, was admitted to the hospital just two days after completing her fast where she died of cardiac arrest, the family said. At least 600 people attended Aradhana’s funeral hailing her as a ‘bal tapasvi’. The funeral procession was called a ‘shobha yatra’ – a mark of celebration. Aradhana’s family runs a jewellery business and has a shop in the Pot Bazaar area of Secunderabad. Questions are being raised why they allowed her to give up school and sit on a fast.
