Ramadan Drummers and Eid Mubarak


In many Muslim countries there is a historical tradition that the people are woken up for suhoor/sehri (time to eat late night for the fast) by a drummer. With the advent of technology like time keeping devices, artificial lights etc since the 19th century the number of such people have been decreasing gradually. In some places these people are still around for nostalgic reasons. I was thus delighted to find this image of a Ramadan Drummer in a Sci-Fiesque setting on DeviantArt. The main idea here is that some traditions are retained even in the face of technological tradition.

And of course, Eid Mubarak!
