‘Look, there’s such a rush! What are those so many people doing over there? That huge group circling that van, what’s all the hip hop for? Or has the vehicle suffered from a serious accident? WHAT ARE THEY ALL UP TO? Oh move aside, I have GOT TO LOOK!’
And lo! A royal cow has arrived in our locality, for tomorrow’s Baqra Eid!!! And oh, not just one, there are four of them!
Its Eid-ul-Adha, or Baqra Eid as we call, the second Eid that Muslims around the globe celebrate (this one after the holy Pilgrimage), in the remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim and Ismail (A.S)’s exemplary sacrifice.
This event brings a lot of happy (and yummy) moments together, that start even before the day comes, and lasts long after Eid is finally over.
After a long wait when the cattle finally arrives, (not to mention the mandi process since oops, I’ve NEVER been there) that excitement to play and feed and taking them for a walk and then finally having them slaughtered *tears* and then feasting with those DELICIOUS steaks and seekh-kababs and this and that, and that, and that, it’s SCRUMPTIOUS!!
This Eid also brings a lot of cherish-able moments with it, the best of which include those MEGA-RUNS when one of the bechari goats (or in some cases, a wild buffalo) runs away and a crazy crowd start running after it, leaving rest of the world (or women) laughing behind!
Anyways, I wish you all a very happy Eid! Party hard and don’t forget to care for those deprived.
Eid Mubarak 😀

Thank you! So glad you commented! 🙂
Maria hamari gaye aye and ate hi bhag gae phir khudi andar agye bhagte bhagte 😀
Great 😀 One of our bakras once ran away like that, as in meri ghalti but I had NO idea what to do. However it turned out to be quite seedha-sadha and stopped when it finally reached home! 😉
Eid Mubarak in advance 🙂
Our gaye is not at all sedhi sadhi 😛 Khair Mubarak 😀
Bechari aa tou gai thi khud wapis? 😦 Seedhi hui na! 😉
thts becuase he saw an open gate. Itna mar ri he wo dosri gaye ko rat se :p
Now that is cruel, but trust me dosri gaye won’t have been any less. =D
tum uski side looo basss 😀
Wo tou mae leti rahungi. As in side hi tou le sakty haen? In the end unhi ki tikka boti khaty haen 😉
han yar bechare ‘Qurbani k bakre’ 😛
ok, i will have to come back and read this again, and maybe again., as work now rudely intrudes on life. i’m not sure yet if this a tribute or a sarcastic jab. if the latter is true, it rings very close to a short essay i’m constructing in my mind (lots of space there) in “honor” of hunting season. peace, and have a lovely day!!
Do come back again, and we eat meat you know.
Have a great day!
is that a sigh because I’m not clever enough to figure this out??
No, because it wasn’t really a ‘sarcastic jab’. Sarcasm and me are different things actually. And that ‘sigh’ was because it isn’t a ‘hunting’ game, but a ‘sacrificing spirit’ as I would call.
I’d like to read your essay, though! : )
Thank you and to you too! 🙂
