A Chand Raat stroll at Jama Masjid on this Eid

This is the happier time after month of sorrowful fasting of Ramadan. Chand Raat brings joyful people to the market for shopping. It is also one of our favourite times to visit the Jama Masjid market to soak ourselves in the feeling of joy and compassion. A collection of images from this year’s visit to the Jama Masjid market, though it was not so crowded when we reached, but numbers had started ballooning by the time we packed-off.

Chand Raat1
Meena Bazar makes a beautiful view!
What will suit me better!
What will suit me better!
Which head are they going to fit!
Which head are they going to fit!
Time to relax!
Time to relax!

केदार नाथ अग्रवाल आधुनिक हिंदी कविता के सिरमौर कवियों में से एक हैं। ईद पर उनकी एक प्यारी कविता।
ईद मुबारक

हमको,
तुमको,
एक-दूसरे की बाहों में
बँध जाने की
ईद मुबारक।

बँधे-बँधे,
रह एक वृंत पर,
खोल-खोल कर प्रिय पंखुरियाँ
कमल-कमल-सा
खिल जाने की,
रूप-रंग से मुसकाने की
हमको,
तुमको
ईद मुबारक।

और
जगत के
इस जीवन के
खारे पानी के सागर में
खिले कमल की नाव चलाने,
हँसी-खुशी से
तर जाने की,
हमको,
तुमको
ईद मुबारक।

और
समर के
उन शूरों को
अनुबुझ ज्वाला की आशीषें,
बाहर बिजली की आशीषें
और हमारे दिल से निकली-
सूरज, चाँद,
सितारों वाली
हमदर्दी की प्यारी प्यारी
ईद मुबारक।

हमको,
तुमको
सब को अपनी
मीठी-मीठी
ईद-मुबारक।

This is the only place in the market for these and the volume seems to be astonishing-

Chand Raat10

Who cares for cholesterol when it is time of festivities-

Chand Raat11

For us it was Al-Jawahar this time, a change from usual Karim's
For us it was Al-Jawahar this time, a change from usual Karim’s
But the real test would be the taste of the sewaii on Eid
But the real test would be the taste of the sevaiyan on Eid

Till the Eid prayers in Eidgah and the special Eid Namaz at Jama Masjid, it was all fun in the market
