 RAMZAN - MONTH OF RELIGIOUS FERVOUR AND GAIETY  

Shopping for RamzanThe holy month of Ramzan is a special occasion in the life of a Muslim. Muslims fast the whole month and at the end of it they celeberate the Ramzan with joy. Fasting during this month is considered as the third pillar of Islam. And also Ramzan is a time of intensive worship, reading of the Quran, showing of charity, purifying one's behaviour, devotion to god, self control and doing good deeds.

Shopping with joy Ramzan emphasizes on community aspects and since everyone eats dinner at the same time, Muslims often invite one another to share the Ramzan evening meal. Haleem, a persian delicacy and Dahi-baday, a Hyderabadi dish are two favourite things people wait the whole year for. Haleem is a combination of wheat, pulses, meat and spices. Sheer qurma made with noodles (semiya) is a special soup prepared on Id.

Buying new clothes during the month of Ramzan is a tradition. In the twin cities, most of the busy shopping areas like Abids, SP Road, Sultan Bazar and Pathergatti will be bustling with shopping activity. Burqa clad woman browsing through the shops is a common sight in all these places.

Festive atmosphere For many, Ramzan shopping is incomplete if the Old City is not visited. The real Ramzan action is seen in the Charminar area. As one wades through the crowds at majestic Charminar, which is the hub of all activities, one will come across rows of well lit and decorated shops, eye-catching banners, and shops wooing customers. The activity picks up around dusk, goes on brisk, and uninterrupted well into late hours of the evening. And the products sold here are cheap and offer much choice to the customers. Clothes, perfumes, traditional caps, bangles, all are available here.
