Com­mer­cial Man­ager in a ship­ping com­pany

I have been in Qatar for the past 2.5 years and in the gulf re­gion for 12 years. I started fast­ing when I was in Qatar dur­ing 20092011. In fact, it started as fun be­cause a col­league wanted to prove that Ra­madan fast­ing is the most ar­du­ous fast­ing process and I wanted to prove him wrong so I kept the Ra­madan fast and asked him to fol­low the Sabari­mala Fast­ing which is ob­served for 41 days and dur­ing these days, one can eat only veg­e­tar­ian food. He failed mis­er­ably to main­tain a ve­gan rou­tine.

Af­ter the fast­ing I could feel a new en­ergy of sorts and ex­pe­ri­ence low tox­i­c­ity lev­els, re­newed en­ergy, mind calm­ness etc. So rest was his­tory and hence­forth I con­tin­ued.

I start my fast early morn­ing with a glass of warm milk or just warm wa­ter with an ap­ple and then it is ab­so­lutely noth­ing till sun­set. I break my fast with fruits, dates and wa­ter. Then I pro­ceed for a brisk walk to bal­ance the metabolism and by 7-8 PM have a nor­mal din­ner and that’s it for the most of 30 days with an ex­cep­tion of If­tar in­vi­ta­tions.
