Eid: Expectations VS Reality

In a perfect world, we would all look breathtakingly beautiful in our perfect Eid clothes, feasting on mouthwatering dishes lining a big table in the garden, in the company of our friends and relatives. Unfortunately, the reality is a bit different, to say the least.

Waking up late

Barely having any time to shower

Making a mad dash for azarband (drawstring), and fighting for the iron.


A taunt from your dad: “Ye larka her saal ye he kerta hai!”
