Id Mubarak :)

Id Mubarak to all of Hyderabad!

The two big festivals of two great religions being so close to each other is something to wonder about. May be things are not so different as they appear from outside. Add to that the fact that many non-muslims love eating ‘haleem’ the special preparation only available during the month of Ramzan and people light fire-crackers during Diwali time across faiths makes it even more amazing.

Historically thrrough its 400 year existence, Hyderabad has been an epitome of religious tolerance and secularism barring incidents every now and then, which are instigated by greedy politicians for their selfish means. But after every dark moment this city has come out ever stronger and better.

Wishing you all a happy Ramzan and please light any firecrackers/fireworks left-over from Diwali over the weekend.
