Anyone can observe these fasts, obviously, but its often the lady of the house who undertakes to do it on behalf of her family members. So if you ask her to join you in a sea-food buffet at West End on a Monday afternoon, you might hear her exclaim: ''But today is my Monday!'' Its a quaint Indian usage which means s/he's fasting for _____ (refer list & affix appropriate god's name), & cannot partake of non-vegetarian food/ drinks/ whole grains/ root vegetables/ or whatever on that day.
