Food attracts the maximum attention in India, be it happiness, mourning, astronomical events. With regards to the eclipse astrology states, the celestial bodies like the sun and moon have an effect on our bodies and an eclipse can also have an impact on our bodies.
Impact should be seen on all living creatures and not just food( cooked or uncooked). There is no scientific evidence to verify these theories so no fasting or feasting is needed to be followed for eclipse too. We are now debunking this myth and encouraging people to drink and eat so that people avoid dehydration, headaches, acidity, fatigue etc. Stay active, eat light and remain well hydrated.
