Some years ago Eidul Azha or Bakra Eid, as it is commonly referred to, used to be a simple affair. A designated person would purchase the goats/cows for their family and the qasab/kasai would slaughter the animals and remind us of the great sacrifice taken by Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) to show his devotion to God.
Where Eid-ul-Fitar is all about Eidi, vermicelli, hot n spicy channa chaat, fruit trifal and sweet delights, Eid-ul-Azha is about Mutton roast, Kababs, Biryani and fun-filled family BBQ night. But off course choriya, mehendi and mesmerizing Eid dresses are always a part of every festival, after all girls are all about ‘Sajna Sawarna’.
The central attraction of Eid-ul-Azha is the slaughtering of goats and cows everywhere. A day before Eid, where girls are busy applying henna and facial cleansers, boys and kids take their bakras to ‘Fancy Bakra Walk’ where Bakras are all dolled up in beautiful costumes, balloons, ribbons and sparkling glitters. Eid-ul-Azha comes with bringing thousands of childhood memories about some unforgettable memories of favorite bakra and the fancy bakra walk, the family moments of cold and foggy BBQ nights, the charm of childhood bakra wrestling…etc.
