The Relaxed Month

Well, Ramazan is almost over. Depending on when the new moon (which marks the start of the next Islamic month) is sighted, we’ll be celebrating the festival of “Eid”, either on Wednesday or Thursday.

It has been a pretty slow and uneventful month. Most offices, banks and schools close early here during the fasting month, some as early as noon. This means that there’s a limit to what you can get done. To top it off, I’m used to working late into the night so after waking up at around 4:30am for the morning meal and pr@yers, I have to sleep again for a few hours. That leaves hardly 4 hours to get anything useful done.

Here’s to a more productive next month …urm after the holidays next week.
