Eid celebrated in Delhi

People gathered at Jama Masjid, Fathepuri Masjid, Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah, Moth-Ki-Masjid and other mosques in different parts of the capital to offer prayers.

"Eid-ul Fitr marks the end of Ramazan (and) the festivities mark the end of the month-long fasts with feasts," said Munir-ul-Arfeen, a resident of Delhi's Okhla area.

Sighting of the moon Tuesday night marked the end of the holy of Ramazan.
"The word 'Eid' in Arabic means festivities and 'Fitr' means breaking the fast," Munir-ul-Arfeen said.

Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated by feasting on several varieties of 'sevaiyan' (vermicilli).
"There will be lot of sevaiyan... we are going to celebrate with friends and family," said Nida Khan, a resident of Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi.
