Fasting to Feasting – Navratri Food at Select CITYWALK
There is something extraordinarily beautiful about these 9 days. It is about the Goddess and it is also about the faith, the fervour, and the fun we have. Dedicating ourselves to righteousness and celebrating all things good is the best way to uphold the Navratri spirit. It is in commemoration of this spirit that we undertake a fast during this period. It is important to remember that fasting does not necessarily require us to give up on food and starve. The prescribed food for festive days is high on Satvik qualities that help us purify our thoughts and acquire more virtues. Select CITYWALK restaurant partners are here to transform your Navratri fasting into a veritable feast. Here are some of our restaurants you must visit.
