LAHORE, Pakistan – The Ramadan bazaar is full of life, with people gathering to buy and sell a wide range of foods during the holy month.
During Ramadan, every Muslim tries his best to arrange tasty and gourmet meals for the iftar, the sunset meal that breaks the fast, for himself and his family.
There are stalls for almost everything anyone can think of. Sugar, flour, fruit, vegetables, soft drinks, juices, meat, spices, oil and more can be easily obtained by the public.
The bazaars are well maintained. The system of cleanliness and drainage in case of rain – something that is quite likely to happen every day due to the monsoons – is perfect.
The only problem the public might face, at some times, is traffic. The district government solved that, too, by not allowing vehicles to enter the market, and giving them an alternate way to go.
This way, the traffic does not block the bazaar, people can shop easily, and the people driving in traffic also face no difficulty.
