Tuesday, as per Indian/Hindu beliefs is a day of Gods and Goddesses, Veg Food, Fasting and Prayers. Scientifically these rituals help in cleaning and purification of body and mind.”
Tuesday is also dedicated to Lord Hanuman and Mangal, the planet Mars. Devotees also listen to Hanuman Chalisa. Hindus fast to honour Hanuman and seek his help in warding off evil and overcoming obstacles placed in their way. Fasting is also observed by couples who want to have a son. After sundown, the fast is typically broken by a meal consisting only of wheat and sugar. People wear red-coloured clothes on Tuesdays and offer red flowers to Lord.
