Eid Mela

Tonight there was Eid mela in lahore Jamath khana. I had good time just like anyone else and enjoyed it after having a boring day sitting in my room all day.

The mela started after JK karwai (it had resumed in fact) and when I entered in the lawn I was amazed by the excellent arrangement and stalls by volunteers and jamati members.

There were food stalls which were offering foods from all parts of Punjab and Gilgit-Baltistan. There were some interesting play and win games also. The throw the ring around and get that stuff had attracted people quite well and hit the cane and have a drink cane also attracted many coke fans.The quality and variety of food and these game was so good that when the music started, even it didn’t lesson the attraction of Jamat specially  the kids.

Music is always a good presentation of any culture and here too music from many culture was played and kids got chance to dance and show their abilities. But the most attractive part was the kids singing competition.I was thinking how much the confidence of those kids be boosted when the go on at the stage and sing because I know it is hard as I have never either sung or danced in my life.

The next part of the mela was lucky draw. Some jamati members went home with feeling of being lucky as they won something valuable. One of them was a hardly 1-2 years old kid who won the only mobile phon in the draw and I wounder how lucky he  must be to win  out of so many elders who I guess must be praying.

The last part of mela was certificates distribution to appreciate the efforts of the volunteers who had put in so much energy and time to arrange such a nice family event.

During all this program the discipline maintained by the Jamat was excellent.I think these kinds of programs are very important as they give life to the festivals like Eid which are otherwise are being celebrated just to complete the formality.We have almost five to six religious festivals other than the national fastivals so if such programs are arranged in every festival then the jamat will have good healty activity.
My one last observation was the participation of old age citizens and the special arrangements for them by the volunteers.I really appreciate this good thinking of the leaders and management team.May Mawla bless we all.
