President Pranab Mukherjee greets people on the advent of holy Ramzan
The President of India, Pranab Mukherjee greeted Muslims on the advent of holy month of Ramzan and hoped that it would show way towards peace and harmony.

President Mukherjee in his Ramzan message stated, "I greet all my Muslim brothers and sisters on the occasion of the commencement of the holy month of Ramzan."

"May the spirit of Ramzan illuminate the world, show us the way to peace and harmony and remind us of our duties towards the less privileged," he added.

Ramadan is most sacred observance to Muslims since the Holy Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed during this blessed month.

Most Muslims spend the month of Ramadan in fasting and praying in mosques, especially for evening prayers known as "taraweeh" as well as reading Koran.

Thus, Ramzan is a period of self-reflection and appreciation for human life by fasting and expressing gratitude to the Almighty by revealing the Koran and preparing one-self to live a life of purity through self-reflection.

Here are my Haiku poems to express the true essence of Ramzan.

Fasting, self-restraint -
Shield they us from the evil
To lead blessed life
---
Say only kind words.
Be polite to those who revile
Fast with a calm grace.
---
Fast and shun desires
You will be blessed, happy
to feel God's presence.
---
It's Ramadan fast -
It's the fast of expiation -
self-purification.
