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.
