Iftari. The one thing you’re dreaming about the whole day for a complete month. You know you’re going to get your reward, soon.
You’ve just spent an infinitely long amount of time slogging through hunger and thirst and you don’t have an ounce of patience left in you. Optimize your time and whatever’s left of your energy into getting the best out of the feast in front of you:
Step 1: Grab the choicest spot at the table
Ensure that you’re close to your favorite dishes.
Step 2: Get hold of your favorite iftari item
Step 3: Choose the juiciest dates and chaats and best fried bombs
Take it up a notch by decorating your plate with them. Helps to kill time in addition to looking super appetizing.
Step 4: Ignore disapproving looks and comments
Step 5: Fill your glass with water or sharbat, then place the jugs away from you
This is to ensure nobody bothers you to pass on anything they can’t reach.
Step 6: Keep close track of time and wait…
Patience, my friend. Patience. Resist the urge to attack the gharee.
Step 7: Dive into your food the moment the watch strikes iftari o’clock
Step 8: Sneak away the bones and pits into your neighbor’s plate
You’ll look innocent when reaching for second and third helpings.
Step 9: Wash down every bite to make way for the rest of the pile
Congratulations you’ve done justice to the iftari. Now, you can either go for a run around the mohalla to get the contents in your stomach moving, or grace the throne in the bathroom.
After all, there’s only so much time left for sehri.
