India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi will begin his annual ritual of 'nakkoda' fasting that he has been observing every Navratri for the past 35 years — nine days of drinking only water and strict adherence to yoga, meditation and puja at dusk — a day before he leaves for a five-day visit to the US on September 26.
Sources said some officials in the PMO and MEA in charge of protocol are in talks with the Indian embassy in the US to make arrangements for his fast. For President Barack Obama's banquets, Michelle Obama is said to work with the best chefs to create a menu that will also include fresh fruit and vegetables straight from her kitchen garden in the White House.
