While it is common for streets to be decorated with green streamers, and lights on Milad-un-nabi, this particular lane in Laad Bazaar was decorated with colourful cloth – sponsored by some cloth merchant. While many residents on either side were gearing up for festivities, at the end of the lane, food was being prepared in large quantities for distribution among the poor.

Milad-un-Nabi

Hyderabad was green all over and studded with many moons and stars as the city celebrated the Eid Milad un Nabi with great fervour.

Milad-un-Nabi translated means the birth of the Prophet and commemorates the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet. Muslims gather and recall the teachings of the Holy Prophet through public processions, rallies, public meetings and also feed the poor. The lanes and streets are illuminated and decorated.
