Eid ul Fitr @ Amroha

On the evening of 29th Ramzaan, the Moon was sighted in India this year. And this was confirmed by the loud sirens. That was the last time sirens came to life this year. Eid ul Fitr was celebrated the next day. People said Alvida to Ramzaan. That was the end of one month long fasting and the additional taraweeh prayer.

Markets were most crowded that evening. All shops remained open till 2 a.m. Women went out to finish their month long shopping. All Kurta shops were crowded with men. Tailors were trying hard to wrap up their work. Everyone was in hurry. Girls were busy buying their accessories and getting henna applied over their hands.

All aunties were busy preparing various dishes including Sheer. Everyone expects a lot of guests on Eid. The weather was very pleasant with clouds and cool breeze flowing. Most importantly there was un-interrupted electricity supply(if you were in Amroha, plz replace 'un-interrupted electricity supply' with 'fewer power cuts').

Eidgah Amroha after Eid Prayer
In the morning all roads leading to Eidgah were overcrowded. Thousands of men were moving towards Eidgah for Eid prayer wearing their new Kurta-Payjama. Due to rain that happened early morning all roads were wet. People were moving slowly saving their clothes from mud. After prayer and dua it again started raining and people reached home completely soaked in water. Rest whole day was spent visiting relatives and friends. And enjoying all the delicious stuff.

Amroha Eidgah
Many temporary Kebab-Samosa shops were opened in the city. All children received Eidi from elders. The whole city was in mood of celebration.
