Crescent moon over India

October 26, 2006
India celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr over October 24 and 25.

The moon was sighted in some parts of India late on October 23 and the holy month of Ramzan ended a day earlier for these folks.

The men of the family gathered at mosques, big and small, across the country on October 24 and 25 for community prayers. And then the revelry began -- special Eid lunches, family get togethers and plenty of brotherhood and fellowship.
