Un­fair to bump up price of my favourite food for Ra­madan

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS... -

There were fre­quent re­ports in the press lately that prices of a large num­ber of food items would be brought down dur­ing Ra­madan, this was wel­come news to many. How­ever, last night when I vis­ited a pop­u­lar restau­rant - which func­tions in most food courts - to have my reg­u­lar favorite soup, I was (un) pleas­antly sur­prised to see that they have hiked up the price by one dirham! I men­tioned that the price was lower just two weeks ago to which the lady replied....... “we in­creased the price at the start of Ra­madan”!!! K Khan Dubai to health. I can vouch for the fact that the sat­is­fac­tion that you get when you see a poor soul walk­ing again af­ter be­ing brought in a mis­er­able state, is some­thing, no gift or money can match. I feed stray cats that I find around my apart­ment build­ing and would gladly take in any that re­quire my help to sur­vive. Pets or strays, they are liv­ing be­ings and re­quire our sup­port to sus­tain them­selves. Af­ter all, they all ended up on the streets, thanks to our self­ish­ness alone!
