Eid Mubarak


I took this shot of these little Bohri kids at the Gateway of India (in Bombay, August 2005) watching two dogs fight (just off the screen to the left). The slightly off-balance Parsi lady in the right apparently felt for the dogs, and went in and broke the fight up.

Truth be told, I've no idea why I thought the kids were Bohri ... perhaps because the skull-caps had that brown calligraphic decoration that (I think) Bohri men favor.

Slate has a neat photo-essay on the end of Ramzaan (in its Indian spelling).

Here's the text from the Holy See for the end of Ramadan.
