Generally, the joy of a festival is multifold when you have been holding your celebrative modes for a long stretch of time. This stretch of time is about perseverance, discipline, commitment and the honour that you give to your God. Once this stretch of testing time is over, you indulge in an expansive mode of celebration with a lot of scrumptious food and sweets, combined with times of Brotherhood and togetherness.
We are talking about the festival of Ramzan. After one month of fasting our brothers and sisters get to enjoy some of the most awesome Biryani ever made in the history of mankind, along with some sewian - speciality sweet for the celebration.
The Muslims who celebrate Ramzan hold in high regard, the lunar calendar. They are very watching full of the phase of the Moon that determines when the festival of Eid ul Fitr would start. Eid ul Fitr is celebrated with great enthusiasm, not only by the Muslim brothers but also by every person in the neighborhood. This is what makes our India an amazing country.
As much as the concept and the celebration of Ramzan originated somewhere in the Middle East, India being the largest Muslim population in the world has its own version of Ramzan that is a bit Indianized. Yes! There are people who religiously visit the mosque on that day and offer the special Namaz before enjoying the biryani and the other delicacies.
However, Indian that we are, we can't resist having crackers for any Celebration, and Ramzan is not an exception to this golden rule. Though crackers are not an essential part of Ramzan, we have made the crackers an inevitable part of the Indian version of Eid ul Fitr.
For all we know, crackers could be one of the biggest factors of unification when it comes to celebrations in India!
