Eid, popularly known as Eid-ul-Fitr, is a festival observed by the Muslim community to celebrate the conclusion of the month of fasting.

Muslims believe that during the month of Ramadan, Allah revealed the first verses of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam. Around 610 A.D., a caravan trader named Muhammad took to wandering the desert near Mecca (in today’s Saudi Arabia) while thinking about his faith. One night a voice called to him from the night sky. It was the angel Gabriel, who told Muhammad he had been chosen to receive the word of Allah. In the days that followed, Muhammad found himself speaking the verses that would be transcribed as the Qur’an.

During the festival, Muslims exchange gifts, greeting their neighbors as a mark of solidarity and brotherhood. According to the Islamic tradition, there are two festivals observed by Muslims every year – Eid-ul-Fitr just after Ramadan and Eid-ul-Zuha in the month of Haj. Ramadan, the month of fasting, symbolizes a lot practices and beliefs of the community. It is not merely restraining oneself from having food but also to abstain from all kinds of evil and unlawful practices in Islam. Muslims, just before the celebrations of Eid-ul-Fitr, keep a month long fast throughout the month of Ramadan. The practice of fasting is also known as ‘Roza’ that starts from the break of dawn till dusk and during this whole day an individual has to refrain himself from drinking, eating.

The month long fasting ends with the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr that symbolizes a reward for their fasting. Muslims on this day wear their best clothes (Purple is the color of Eid) and offer ‘Namaz’ a congregational prayer at mosques… Mehndi is thought about to be an all-important ingredient for the females for decorating the beauty of their hand. Any occasion cannot be complete without mehndi (henna). EID Mehndi styles are most searched mehndi styles in India, Pakistan & Arabic. After offering their prayers they exchange good wishes of the festival with their neighbors and other people.

The celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr not only has religious essence but also carries a social connotation. Like other festivals, Eid-ul-Fitr is also observed with great enthusiasm. Delicious food and drinks are an indispensable part of the festivity. People decorate their houses and prepare luscious traditional sweets and cuisines to celebrate the festival.

From sumptuous historical epics to action packed blockbusters, Bollywood cinema has captured the hearts of audiences with its unique blend of music, movement and melodrama.

Let’s remember the nostalgic moments of Bollywood divas…Part 1

We can start our journey from the magic of Madhubala, who immortalized Anarkali on the silver screen with her flawless performance in Mughal-e-Azam, continues to enthrall cinema lovers all over the world. Her success was followed by Dulari (1949), Beqasoor (1950), Tarana (1951) and Badal (1951) & the success of these films placed her among the most bankable actresses of the 50s alongside Kamini Kaushal, Suraiya and Nargis.

Nutan – A fine actress and was capable of expressing anything with her eyes and face. Nutan was not only blessed with a graceful personality and great acting skills, her voice was also quite serene. In Seema (1955) we can see the tempests raging and dying in her eyes as the bhajan ‘Manmohana bade jhoote’. In 1960’s and 1970’s Nutan regularly picked up awards for diverse roles in films like Milan (1967), Saraswati Chandra (1968), Saudagar (1973) and Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki (1978).
