When all faces turn bright;
Morning begins with sweet vermicelli and exchange of Money;
Washing off the hand paint (henna) to see what color it gave you after keeping it overnight;
Setting the tables with Nimco, Sweets & other delicacies for the guests;
Cleaning the house, washing up to get ready and greeting people as they come in, collecting gift money; running to the room to count how much does the envelope contain and putting it all together in a box/jar;
Drafting a lovely greetings message and sending it all across your phone directory;
Preparing to welcome / arrive at lavish dinner daawats at relative’s house;
Feeling happy at the money box/ jar getting heavier as the days pass;
Forgetting to drink water every now & then because you seem to be out of habit;
Keeping a bottle of Hajmola with you because you can’t seem to stop yourself from eating;
Looking pretty & taking selfies with everyone around you;
Putting up tons & tons of Facebook/ Twitter posts;
Sulking on the start of a regular work week as the holidays end;
Missing the fasting month gone by; returning to the usual life again;
But above all – not keeping any grudge in the hearts. Such is the occasion of Eid – One cannot just let the hateful toxins live inside on this event. Even the most conflicted personalities bend down on this day and greet happily. Eid has a natural charm of making people feel the love and greet every one with respect. It’s probably one of the most blissful occasions in the world. God bless!
EID MUBARAK to all!
