Its that time of the year again when I need to cleanse my soul of the unspeakable sins that I commit throughout the year and hang it out for drying :P well well.. Ramzan is here and I'm 10 fasts deep into it. So far so good. This is my daily schedule for 30 days where divinity becomes my second name :) morning starts early, I'm up at 4:00 a.m to have Sihori (breakfast during fasting) I walk around like a zombie, try to stuff myself with enough food and water to get me through the day. But when you're half asleep nothing else but sleep matters. Then I promptly fall asleep at 4:30 a.m. Much later with all the willpower in the world I drag myself out of bed at 7:15 to pray (its too late by this time to pray but I pray anyway.. Gee! ) and I g et ribbed by my parents for it. The rest of the day is a blur and just a long wait for the clock to strike 6. During the day I accompany friends for lunch and tea breaks which is a major test of endurance for me :( Finally the much awaited hour arrives and I go pray on my office terrace with the songs of a billion crows to keep me company, I don't know why on earth they choose that time to scream their lungs out. So, after prayer I have Iftari (snacks to break the fast = "Breakfast" :P ) Voila! Thats the end of one successful roza (fast) And thats how the story goes for the rest of the month. Oh, And I've already picked up an outrageously expensive outfit for eid... talk bout rewards in advance..
