My Daily Ramadan Thoughts - 5/2009

My Daily Ramadan Thoughts - 5/2009

Today is the 5th day of the holy month of Ramadan. Many organisations are arranging Iftar evenings. It is an opportunity to break the fast together with everone, without any type of discremination. It is also an opportunit to feel the oneness and enjoy the blessings of a full days of deovtion to god. Please do not miss an opportunity to participate in an Iftar evening.

Difficulties or sadnes comes in different forms of types to all of us. How we overcome it and how we work our way out of it shows what type of person in life we are and to what level our success factor is. During my recent holidays I met a family of four. A father, mothe and two children. The family has already spent about 18 lakhs for various treatment for a terminal illness which the mother is suffering from. However, we found the family with full of happiness, living the day as it evolves out in front of them and do not worried about what is in store for them for the coming tomorrow. I also happened to meet another family. A young couple. When we went, the father was busy watching the share market analysis on the TV and mother was at work. Their only child - an year old girl - was lying in the bed watching the share market charts moving and the analysis happening with curiosity. When the mother comes back from work, the father will move on for his night shift. I was wondering about the child. Changing faces and changing times for the new generation. When are they going to get a few hours together - may be it also depends on the financial and recessional markets fate.

Praying all good to happen to all the harmonious communities and social groups and gatherings during this holy month of Ramadan, I wish you all a wonderful Ramadan evening.
