I re­mem­ber grow­ing up in my grand­mother’s palace in Bhopal. She was a de­vout Mus­lim, and dur­ing Eid, our rel­a­tives and cousins would visit. This meant a small for­tune in eidi (a gift/money given to chil­dren by el­ders of the fam­ily on Eid), which would in­crease my in­ter­est in the pro­ceed­ings. But the most fun part was watch­ing the can­non in the court­yard be fired to sig­nal the time for if­tar. I’d go to the ser­vants’ quar­ters to eat with Suriya (the maid who would look af­ter him).
