“The month of Ramzan has been my favorite time from since I was a child till now. People are selfless and go that extra mile to care for the less fortunate. I believe that this is one of those months where fewer poor people go to sleep with an empty stomach, while everyone leads the life of an ideal person, following human values, I believe the world will be a truly great place if we live the rest of our lives with the same values.
After all, isn’t Ramzan a time to train people to lead life the right way? Isn’t it the time for us to embrace the real and human side of each one of us? I have been taught to share with the less fortunate at all times, and I make sure I do it in Ramzan or not. However, this year has been different.
There’s no air of festivity, no gatherings for prayers, no hitting the streets for Haleem, or no catching up with the kith and kin. Given that I live in a containment zone of the pandemic, I see no possibility of visiting my family this year. This is the first year away from my family, but then, I think staying away from people is a great way to show love now! Besides that, I think we should also use this year’s festival money to bring a smile on the faces of those who are suffering because of the pandemic. Ramzan is all about finding joy in giving to others, and what better time than now.
Right from my childhood, this month holds a special place in my heart. I used to long for the dusk as it brings all the neighbors together. Sharing food, chatting, and praying, the evening would go to a merry! I miss that this year surely, but I think maintaining social distance is important now. When we get selfish and hurt nature, we’re bound to pay for it. I think this pandemic is one such lesson.”
