Eid ul-Fitr is one of the most celebrated festivals for Muslims worldwide. It marks the end of Ramadan which is the holy month of fasting. The term Eid ul-Fitr means 'The festival of the breaking of the fast'. It is the first day of the month of Shawwal and the date is decided with the sighting of the crescent moon. The day is stated with special prayers, usually done in a large hall or open field.
 
Eid 2018 in India begins with festivities on the previous night itself, called 'Chand Raat' (night of the moon). Excitement is in the air as people shop at bazaars for Eid shopping. Young girls also apply henna/ mehandi on their hands and wear colourful bangles. Eid, in India, (particularly Eid ul-Fitr) is also called the 'Sweet Festival', with sweet food items taking centre stage on this auspicious day. Lachha Seviyan, a delicious dish of roasted seviyan (vermicelli) in milk, topped with dried fruits, is key to this occasion.
