13 year old Aradhana Samdaria died after fasting for 68 days in Hyderabad. This would be the world record for fasting and simply unheard off. The fasting was part of the Jain religion’s ritual of penance and fasting for the family’s prosperity. So why for 68 days because 68 days has great significance in Jainism. The Jain community with a population of only 5 million in India, should think about such losses and that too of its children.
