BENGALIS BEHIND CURTAIN NOT OBSERVING THE FAST. Typically rickshaw wallahs and other physical labor workers eat so they can continue working. I think today was actually one of the hottest days in August. I decided to use this photo since today is the last day of Ramadan. Today is a busy shopping day in the city. Again this morning saw 30 some cows going down the street at the back side of the Parliament Building at 5:35 am! At the one supermarket there were at least 10 people in each of 5 lines. One fellow told me to go to the line clear at the far side. I got there with my 8 items. Soon I see it was a line for people with 5 items or less! I only had 3 kinds of things, maybe that helps? I didn’t argue since I had a rickshaw waiting. I had told him 5-10 minutes, but with the masses of people doing their pre-Eid shopping the supermarket was packed. The new moon was sighted before dark this evening so Ramadan is over and tomorrow is the Eid-ul-Fitr h0liday. People really celebrate the evening before Eid.
