A 13-year-old Jain girl died in Hyderabad after observing a 68-day fast.
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.
But here is the sick reason behind her death.
Aradhana’s family runs a jewellery business and has a shop in the Pot Bazaar area of Secunderabad. Her father, Laxmichand Sansadiya, had recently suffered huge loss in his jewellery business.
A Chennai-based priest had advised the girl’s parents to ask their daughter to observe the ‘Chaturmas’ fast in order to recover from the loss in business and earn huge profits.
Aradhana’s 10-week long fast ended on the 3rd October and it was celebrated with a huge event at their house called ‘Paarana’. The event was also attended by Padma Rao, a Telangana minister from Secunderabad area.
Soon after, she was rushed to a hospital because of dehydration. The girl had slipped into coma after prolonged starvation and the doctors said that her intestines had dried up after the fasting and both her kidneys were also severely damaged.
