Ramzan, which is considered to be the holiest month in the religion of Islam, has finally arrived. It marks the beginning of the month-long fasting period.
During the 30 days or so, people belonging to the Muslim community exercise restraint in their eating habits and eat only twice a day -- a pre-fast meal at dawn called *sehri*, and a post-fast meal after sunset called *iftar*.
Traditionally, the fast is broken with dates and water followed by a light and nutritious meal.
