Dream destination

Time has come, another month of orison and sacrifice. Thinking of trying to fast just like the Muslims although I hail from a Christian background. Why not give it a shot?

Many of my Muslim proselytes might be now busy doing their little homework hopping into supermarkets and stores to get decked up for the month. This unison of religion and culture mutates the dream destination of Dubai into a remarkable reality. So why not figure out what really makes Dubai Ramadan a unique ordeal? Although it’s time to show our empathy this won’t make me cease what I am usually doing with my workout, personal blogs, and write-ups something that keeps me moving and booming in this hustle and bustle. The scorching heat is not something unusual for me as I love the dog days more than the winter solstice keeping me fit and bubbly. Although work goes on I have a choice whether I need to work from home or in the office so the deal is on me with no homework and packing up my tiffin box, wringing my office attires to be done for the next day.

As a non-Muslim secular Indian expatriate raised in Dubai all my life, I get ecstatic and jovial to be a part of this community.  There is a general feeling of goodwill within the community, which is united on the principles of “Deen.” Dubai, being a predominantly Muslim-populated emirate, has made the eminent of the Holy Month visible in all spheres of daily life whether in social, business, entertainment, or cultural aspects. I won’t be able to wear those comfy skinny outfits and walk out in the scorching heat during the afternoons.  As a whole Dubai is a progressive emirate embracing all tourists and expatriates with warmth and providing them their religious space.
