Maili Dema

Kriti Rai 24 Jun 10:09 AM

Last year, my Maili Dema died. Twice. Literally. The family was waiting for her two children to arrive from Kathmandu for the final rites, and that’s when she woke up—after 14 hours. She was already wrapped and put aside in a different room.

Have you ever fasted? If not, maybe you should try it. As for me, I have fasted for seven days, eating one meal only in the evening and drinking a cup of tea or milk twice during the day. That was an amazing experience. It was about six years ago. When you fast, it may be prudent to have a purpose. Fasting just for the sake of fasting may not be that rewarding. Let me explain why I fasted for seven days and what I achieved. Read Full Story »
