Bakra Byte-by-Byte

hassle%20free%20bakra.JPG As Eid-ul-Adhaa is approaching, bakra mandi is becoming more and more inacessible ~ thanks to the heavy traffic. If you are not a big fan of going and selecting the animal yourself, you can always book it online. Remember its E-Bakra Era …!

Unfortunately, couldn’t find any Online Bakra delivery service in Islamabad but I found Online Qurbani. The site’s has some interesting FAQs that can arm you with the right questions to ask from a bakray wala during selection and bargain.

The price range is as usual HIGH as we noticed last year. You’ll go prepared but beware of pickpockets too … !!

I’m pasting below a few Bakra-related terms I learnt last year. May help you :)

Kheera: It’s the animal that is of 1.5 – 2 years old.

Donda: This animal is of 2+ age and usually have 4 teeth in front.

Choga: This is of around 4 years of age and is considered a bit older with not very good quality meat.

But remember while distributing don’t forget the needy.

    As faras I think its an era of financal institutes. There should be a bank which is giving the bakra on lease or small down payment. Is there any????
    Prices of Bakra are really high this year.

    Every year we say this :-)

    Well bakra on lease will kill teh spirit of qurbani .. I remember as one of my teachers suggested that like we make a budget to spend in whole month … why cant we save something from each month and then do qurbani.
