Ramadan started in India on Friday and today is the 5th day of Ramadan here. In Kolkata (Calcutta), the festive season is celebrated with traditional gaiety. Stalls are set up in the roads selling wares for Aftar and shops with Attar, Topi, Sewain and clothes. I will post pictures of these scenes in future, but here is a picture that appeared in the newspaper on Saturday which caught my eye. The place is the Nakhoda Mosque in Kolkata (which I had written about last year, as well) and the time is just before the Friday noon prayers.
