Eid-Ul-Azha


By Ashim Sunam

“I pass by Jama masjid everyday, but today I was amazed to see that there are more goats than people crowding the streets”, says Sanjay Singh. He did not know that the festival of Id-Ul-Azha attracts butchers from all around the country, and especially those form North India.  These goats have been herded to the park next to Meena bazaar to be sold for the annual sacrifice. Jama Majid. They travel along with their herd of goats to Jama Masjid in order to sell them. Though it does not yield huge profits, they continue with it owing to their rich traditional roots.
