Eid lunch was celebrated on Aug 2, 2014 by a group of Aligarians( Aligarian means people who have studied at the famous Aligarh Muslim University or AMU ; to know more about AMU please visit http://www.amu.ac.in/).

Eid 2014 was celebrated on Monday July 28,2014, but Eid celebration usually extends to couple of weekends. People rejoice Eid celebrations with various open house parties arranged by a lot of people on Eid day. I attended lot of open houses on Eid day. The party I attended today was exclusively thrown by a very close friend of ours to experience Eid celebrations among the famous Aligarians present in Washington DC metro area. Eid is celebrated on the first day of Shawwal month in Islamic Calendar and marks the end of Holy month of Ramadan.

 Although Indians usually have Mughlai cuisine alongwith Vermicelli on Eid but this Eid lunch had a sumptuous Mediterranean cuisine which was a gastronomic delight. All Aligarians present in Eid lunch talked about their memorable times they have been spending together not only in Washington DC Metro area together but also when they were studying at AMU. Students who have studied at this prestigious university have a very special bond not only when they were studying but even years after they have left their AlmaMater AMU in India. Every Aligarian present in this party bonded together with special love and affection they have for each other.  Please listen  and enjoy  the official song of AMU in Hindustani ( language of Hindi and Urdu combined together) which brings lot of nostalgia and memories to every Aligarian present in more than 94 countries around the world:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rn4fxEYnddw

 
We all Aligarians enjoyed a special bond of love and affection on this Eid lunch!!!!

“Eid Mubarak “or “Blessed Eid” to all the readers of my post.

Would love to hear lot of comments on my post readers!!!
