Jaipur gets set for big celebrations of Meethi Eid
According to a notification, the Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr 2018 will begin in Rajasthan in the evening on Thursday, 14th June and end in the evening on Friday, 15th June.

Eid marks the end of the Holy month of Ramadan, a month of fasting and self-purification that had started on May 16. On Eid in Jaipur, the markets are upbeat for purchases to hold big family get-togethers for a celebratory meal, charity and exchange of gifts.

Eid-ul-Fitar festival marks first day of the month of Shawwal with the followers attending communal prayers and listening to sermons at mosques.

The charity known as zakat al-fitr is performed on this day by feeding or giving monetary assistance to the poor people in the community.

Muslims also wear new clothes, visit family members, exchange Eid cards and give presents of sweets and small toys to children along with organizing community meals.

Here is my haiku to express the true essence of Ramzan:

Fasting, self-restraint -

Ramzan and Eid shield from evil

To lead blessed life
