Ramadan (Fasting Month)
Ramadan is the most important time of year for Muslims in our nation. People in every Muslim household celebrate Ramadan. We don’t eat between dawn and dusk during Ramadan, and we have special food for breakfast before sunup and dinner after sundown.

Rath Yatra is one of the most sacred Hindu festivals of our country, which is associated with Lord Jagannath. The word Jagannath itself means the lord of the whole universe. His followers who are of religions other than Hindu are not allowed to enter the temple premises. However, on this auspicious day of Rath Yatra, the barriers of caste, religion and creed simply vanish when the Lord himself with his siblings give Darshan, or visiting, to all his devotees in this magnanimous chariot.
