There are certain traditions we inherit by birth. We grow up celebrating them and they are a part of who we are. And then there are those which we embrace during our journey, and they become so much a part of our being, it’s hard to remember a time without them.

I’ve spent 12 years of my life in the Maldives, Hyderabad and then Dubai. They say if you need to learn about the culture of a place travel there and experience it. We were fortunate that we lived in these places in the midst of some beautiful generous people and got to experiance and celebrate Ramadan and Eid for years.

My heart feels heavy today, as I am away from all my friends. I am however grateful to be with my family. To celebrate this auspicious day I made Sheer Khurma Kulfi today (thickened Milk and Vermicelli Popsicles ). We will devour them while reminiscing good old times and hoping desperately to able to celebrate with friends again very soon.

Eid Mubarak” to all my friends and family all over the world.
May your homes and hearts be filled with the joyful spirit of Eid! My we all learn to love, respect and be tolerant of each others beliefs. The world needs it!!
