Eid Celebrations: Pre-Eid

Despite the very recent Marriott bomb blast, the maddening rush is no less than all the previous pre-eid days. Markets are humming with people as usual. Whether it be Jinnah Super or Karachi Company or even the boring F-10 Markaz … the Eid hustle bustle actually looks good. Choori Stalls being set up in all major markets. Girls and women shopping as there’s no tomorrow (in these circumstances .. who knows actually).

Just yesterday I went to a market and got the chance to take some quick snaps. For all those who are missing the glitz of Eid and Ramadhan away from Pakistan. And all those colors. Dont forget to pray for Pakistan.

A quick excerpt from Daily Times:

Glass bangles and Hena are the first things women, old or young, look for at roadside stalls or Eid Bazaars. The more variety of bangles and latest patterns of Hena you have, the more chances you have of attracting large crowds. In this time of cutthroat competition, lights and music are the new attractions for female Eid shoppers. Mostly, young boys run these stalls and women don’t mind getting served by them. However, some stalls offer services of women.

Perhaps, it’s the best thing of Chand Raat.
