"There is a mosque nearby where our Muslim friends celebrate. People from various places come here in the morning and stand in long line to get the holy water from the mosque. Then there will be a feast for everyone and Sharbat ( juice ) to cool off! Many families meet here, enjoy till the evening followed by shopping on the streets, eating and games.
"Though I am from a different religion (Hindu ) I am fortunate enough to grow with a good understanding of Muslim culture. I personally remember many who were almost like our family members in my village. Now I am living in the cities but I managed to have some Muslim friends here too who invite me during the festival. I always visit when convenient and the Sharabat which I will never miss," said the 33-year-old from Bangalore, India.
