First an apology for being away from the blog, like a few others i was also away to Pakistan for a small trip.
It was after a long time that i got a chance to spend some days of ramzan in Lahore, Pakistan. The experience was a good one as far as food was concerend as a got a chance to eat a lot of heavy and oily food. But my general feeling was of dissapointment.
When i landed at 6:00 Am in the morning at the airport people were pushing to get ahead in the immigration line, that is acceptable as we Pakistanis are fast mvoing people and can not go by the slow system. Anyway when i reached the luggage collection point and was waiting for the luggage i saw a man having his morning smoke. I thought i must have mis calculated the Fajr timing but i did not. He was smoking during the ramdan timming and no one seemed to mind it.
This was not the only time i saw people having something to eat or smoke. Than what was disappointing was the general attitude of people towards ramzan, First people were not into keeping fast as it was not possible for them during work. They got pain in the head or something else. Than Beer or Vodaka (I did not see but heard) is a good way of opening your fast. Than the dressing of girls just put a stamp on you fast. They were dressed head to toe and what was neither a shalwar kameez nor a western shirt and trouser. It was all very very upsetting and confusing. May God guide us in the right path
