'Fasting and puja done only to please gods'

Created by Sahil Kakkar - 20th Aug, 2014

If god is everywhere and in all things alike. Then why is there a constant need to bribe him in the form of fasting and puja?

Blatant wastage of food is usually done at all major puja's and religious celebrations. Instead isn't it better to give the food to someone who needs it than offer it just to appease the gods? Share your thoughts.
