‘Farah, oth jao, aaj Eid hai, tayar ho jao’ (wake up Farah, get ready. It’s Eid today), whispered my mum into my ears to see the joy and glow in my eyes. These words still echo in my head and bring smiles and happiness every year on Eid morning. I do this as a legacy with my daughter too, but by singing Eid songs to her.
