Ramazan

Ramazan is back again, and i can't help but wonder how quickly it has come back. Last year, i had an extra person, a cousin, living in my house, this year i have one less, as my brother has gone to Princeton. Last year, my emotional life was a mess, this year, it is pretty stable.

The thing i like best about Ramazan is listening to the radio. I don't know why, but stations play the best songs during this month! So, i listen to radio much more than ususal, and also because i can't really help it. If music wasn't there to distract me, the thirst would be unbearable!

What do i hate the most? The crappy Ramazan tv shows. Ufff! I can hardly stand them! Nietzsche was right, all believers are too noisy and obtrusive, but those mullahs blabbering on the sehri and aftari shows are way high on the decibel level.

Ramazan comes wid oft-quoted wordings:Khair-o-barket wala month but ths year such khair and barkat is no where to be seen.shortage of flour and spiralling prices are among the bad thngs tht r enough to pinch a sensitive Muslim in our country.
the worst thng ths month 4 me is the seems-never-to-end troubles and poverty that is becoming a ubiquitous phenomenon

Disappointing post Awais.
You don't need to throw it out at every opportunity you see. :)
