The Midnight Lights of Jama Masjid

PHOTO ESSAY

Ramadan is the holy month of fasting,introspection and prayer. Fasting is one of the five fundamental principles of Islam and during Ramdan, followers don’t eat and drink from sunrise to sunset. Fasts are ended by shared meals with loved ones. The Ramadan is concluded with Eid celebrations.

In the hustle bustle of the street, I met a man who resembled by ageing grandfather. In his wrinkled face, I discovered an eternity, a wisdom that time couldn’t change and money couldn’t buy./Photography : Vikash Sharma/ The New Leam
When the fast ends and sunset descends, the heart seeks the warmth of home where love reigns and worries melt away. Not all are fortunate enough to walk back to the shelter of human warmth and to the world where no discriminations remain./Photography : Vikash Sharma/ The New Leam

As the month of Ramdan cleanses the soul and purifies the self, the universe unfolds a celebration of brotherhood and the moment of melting boundaries.
