To-day Id-ul-Fiter is being celebrated by Muslim community after a month long fasting. This fasting indicates sacrifice for the mankind.It ends on the a day of first moon after the new-moon.There was a community prayer and after that very spicy food is served and the day is celebrated among the near and dears.I was invited by one of our Muslim colleague to his residence and enjoyed with them.There was no ill feeling of religion amongst us.What highlighted sometimes in some media may be correct but common people have nothing to do with that.It is created by a group of people having vested interest in it.
Paradip coast is becoming unsafe because of possible oil leak from the sinking Mongolian ship “Black Rose”.Some fish were found dead in the seashore to-day.Port Authority is in consultation with other international agencies for safe evacuation of the furnace oil and diesel that is in the ship.
The 5 days long “Biswakarma Puja” is coming to it’s closure to-day.The deities are being taken in procession to the sea for a submerge.
So, to-day there is Hindu/ muslim festival and a sword in form of oil pollution is hanging over the head of the inhabitants of Paradip.
