Ramadan blues

I don’t know what’s in the air, but everyone I’ve spoken to is in the dumps today since Ramadan is fast approaching, which means the end of greasy lunches, endless cups of tea and snacking away at every opportunity. Personally, I am really looking forward to Ramadan, if for no other reason than the fact that I might be able to quit smoking through fasting. However, if tomorrow is the 1st of Ramadan, then I am SO not looking forward to paying Naheed Supermarket a visit anytime soon, because I can accurately predict the immense number of people who will have to buy groceries today, considering that its the first week of the month and everyone’s wallets are quite full. Or maybe protective headgear might help while navigating aisles?

    I was at Naheed a week ago and even then it had long lines at the check out counters. I was lucky as i had only a couple of things so i was able to check out at the counter upstairs…

    I am also looking forward to ramazan as this would be my first ramazan in Pak after like 5 years. I never missed the roza when i was abroad but i sure did miss the environment of ramazan which is only found in pak.

    At Naheed don’t go to the ground floor for check out if you have a couple of stuff , try the checkout counter on the 1st or befriend the chemist and use his machine , the machine on the 2nd floor if often not working.

    dotn know why when ramadan comes near people rush to stock up. Buy this buy that as if some calamity is approaching. no money at atms…queues here and there and everywhere. is this what ramazan does to you?

    simple reason man , we don’t want to run out of STUFF to eat ..we want LOTS of it ..and more .
    it may defeat the purpose of Fasting to begin with ….but hey no one is perfect !!

    Its human nature. We are afraid of the, unseen future.

    Why go shopping on the sighting of Ramadaan moon? Why not do it a day or two before? I fail to understand this mentality.
