Bakra Eid Preparations: A rare view

Mostly and ideally sheeps cross you like this when you are driving up to a hill station. Nahi? at least filmo main yehi hota hay :)) , anyways, not necessarily but it can happen anywhere close to Bari Eid aka Eid Ul Azha. Goats and sheeps etc. are specially brought to the city so they can be sold on higher prices, which are in fact quite cheap if you buy them from nearby villages. I will try to post some candid snaps from other parts of city, so you guys will know how we celebrate Eid Ul Azha.

    Sacrificial animals must not be let into cities as they destroy vegetation, besides interrupting the traffic flow. If we must have them, animal trading better be confined to markets out of city limits.

    I can’t wait for the Eid, and run-up to it, be over quickly with its gory bloodletting of animals in public. The aftermath only becomes worse when the offal and other unsavoury body parts are almost ritually dumped smack in the middle of streets for dogs and vultures to ravish on, not to mention the lingering stink and germs it leaves behind to pollute the atmosphere. I think for the sake of hygiene and sanitation the sacrificial rituals best be centralized away from urban centres, where leftovers can be buried/incinerated instantly for the benefit of public health.

    PS – Thanks for not falling into the trap of replacing the traditional ‘z’ of Azha in teh Eid’s name with an Arabicized ‘d’:)

    what do u mean by the ‘AZHA remark? Eid ul AZha is the wrong way of writing and pronouncing the word.
    Its an ARABIC word so pronunciation should remain Arabic.
    You can’t skew Arabic words and lead yourself into believing that they are Urdu words.
    happy Eid al ADHA to everybody in advance!
