Ramadan Mubarak ­čÖé

Today marks the 4th day of Ramadan. Every year, I try to tell you a little more about Ramadan, fasting, the traditions and memories associated with this special time of the year.

Many think that Ramadan is only about abstaining from food and drinks from sunrise till sunset. In reality that is only the entry level of the fast. The basic requirements that you must fulfil.

You can control your hunger, thirst  but more importantly you have to control your anger, desires and everything that you are.
