Eid Mubarak

Eid Mubarak has now passed and the experience was huge! Thousands of people in the streets with goats and cows in the hundreds being sacrificed on the street.  I wasn't going to go to the street.. but how could I pass up such a huge cultural experience. I was amazed by the cheer and laughter in the street.  The warmth amongst the people - sharing and joy.     It was very special to spend the day amongst the people in this spirit. Where once I have found many well off Bangladeshis quite curt with low income Bangladeshis. Not on this day.. From the end of morning prayer - donations of money were given freely to the poor.  After  the sacrifice the meat was cut into small pieces - 1/3 for the family, 1/3 neighbors & 1/3 for the poor (equal quality).  The feasting began with families gathered in abundance.  The hides were then given to the madras for the education of orphans.
