Focusing on the subtleties of Eid in a pandemic circumstance
I was six or seven at that point, I recollect that I was playing with a little cosmetics brush at my Bandhobi Nanu’s place (My nana’s sister) at Nanu’s Dhanmondi nineteenth house my mom frequently went in the evenings.
Little me, sitting on a seat next to a major window, and understood that brush from the side table, kept in a pinkish rouge box under a delicately gleaming light. Truly, I got a little frightened when nanu drew nearer! However, too my astonishment, wearing a splendid grin she asked me “Tomar estimated time of arrival pochondo?
,” with my endorsement gesture she said “tumi estimated time of arrival niye jao, amr kotha mone raikho je ami tomar bandhobi nanu chilam.” nothing unexpected, I despite everything have that brush and all these came as a flashback when I was cleaning my brush sets of late.
I was de-jumbling every one of my extras recently. Beginning with my corrective pack as I stated, was additionally cleaning my other little stuffs, continued brushing my watches and abruptly recalled that these were my top picks!
I took a gander at every one of my watches and reflected I didn’t ever step out from home without wearing any of these. Behind claiming every one of them, there is a divided short story joined. In this manner, every one of them are extraordinary to me in its own specific manner.
Until the Covid-19 days, I never figured every one of my frill would abruptly get trivial halt for a considerable length of time on the rack as long as I am living, to be completely forthright.
Focusing on the subtleties of Eid in a pandemic situationThis season, onwards from 27th Ramadan, we as a rule start our Eid occasion that starts with welcome “Eid Mubarak” to our partners. Originating from Dhaka, additionally as my better half’s family is totally in Dhaka, we never need to go anyplace to observe Eid.
In any case, on the most recent day at work, I generally asked my partners where they would spend their Eid, seen their battles for getting tickets, wished them karma and an upbeat excursion likewise a glad Eid, trailed by “see you after the get-away” express.
Left office seeing the care staff re-checking each apparatus before they also leave for a much anticipated excursion. For the progressing lockdown, all these appear as a memory in particular, so inaccessible that it feels like a lifetime now.
The last working day was additionally uncommon for another explanation. Regardless of how bustling my significant other stays in the whole year, that day, he gets the opportunity to leave early and together, in contrast to the entire year, we make a collide with some goods shop! We give a modification our treats list, we surge starting with one store then onto the next, we make our insane visits to Kawran Bazar and when I begin getting ready for the terrific Eid supper at our place. I even make a rundown of the menu in google’s keep, spare plans in a hurry, and afterward ultimately, I understand I need some easily overlooked details more!
Hitched at a youthful age, I have really taken in fundamental cooking from my Grandma-in-law. I have seen my mami shashuris, who have an extraordinary ability of preparing and introducing food in delicious manner. Still exceptionally fortunate to have my mother adjacent to me who instructed me cooking at my little kitchen I own at this point.
In any case, regardless of whether I could cook or not, my better half and I have consistently facilitated Eid meals for our caring family. We grew up, began welcoming more individuals to our modest homestead. My mom consistently says, “individuals don’t visit everybody’s home, you are fortunate that individuals love you and they want to go to your home over and over.”
This year, as well, I need to feel the Eid like I do in different years. Be that as it may, somewhere inside, I just feel fortunate to have the option to in any case be alive and solid.
Still fortunate that all my preferred individuals answer to my calls, answers to my messages and are free from any potential harm in the midst of the progressing pandemic.
In different years, when I appropriated my Zakats, albeit inadequate in size, I felt a little fulfilled that I could help a few families observing Eid, to be completely forthright. This year, all I feel is terrified, I feel so little that my measure of gift may assist some with peopling purchase food just for a couple of days, however what will befall them next?
This acknowledgment of how little we are, and how pitiful we requirement for living drove me into this predicament. Do we truly require all the things we guarantee as “need”?
On the off chance that not, at that point isn’t it in the little subtleties of our life that we give our memory to the people to come, as I was reviewing before all else?
I don’t have an answer now. Not certain when will I have the option to make sense of this. In any case, I truly trust that this adjustment in me stays flawless considerably after the Pandemic.
