How wonderful and beautiful was the morning of Eid! The trees looked greener, the field more festive, the sky had a lovely pink glow. The sun seemed brighter and more dazzling than before to wish the world a very happy Eid.
The village was filled with excitement. Everyone was up early to go to the Eidgah. The boys were more excited than the others. They had been talking about it all the time. Finally the day had come. And now they were impatient. They were taking their treasure out of their pockets, counting and recounting it before putting it back. Mahmood counted “One, two, ten, twelve”– he had twelve coins. Mohsin had “One, two, three, eight, nine, fifteen” coins. With this money, they would buy countless things: toys, sweets, paper-pipes, rubber balls – and much more.
