Eid al-Fitr was originated by the Islamic prophet Muhammad. It is observed on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal at the end of the month of Ramadan, during which Muslims undergo a period of fasting

Fasting during the holy month is one of the five pillars of Islam, which also include prayer and charity. To fast, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and engaging in sexual activity from dawn to sunset. Muslims follow the lunar calendar, which means Ramadan arrives several days earlier each year.

How do igloos stay warm?

Igloos are built out of bricks of ice. Unlike solid ice, which is a poor insulator for heat, all the compressed snow has more air pockets, making it a perfect insulator. All the cool air in an igloo goes to the bottom part and stays there. This means the upper area of the igloo remains warm.

Akshaya Patra ( अक्षयपात्र) meaning inexhaustible vessel, is an object from epic, Mahabharata. It was a wonderful vessel given to Yudhishthira by Lord Surya on Akshaya Tritiya, which held a never-depleting supply of food to the Pandavas every day.

When the Pandavas were in exile in the forest, they received visits from many dignitaries, sages, kings and ministers who were horrified at the turn of events. They came to discuss matters with the Pandavas and show their support. Draupadi found it very difficult to extend the customary hospitality to these numerous guests because the Pandavas were destitute in exile and living in the forest where nothing was available. Yudhishthira prayed to the god Surya, who blessed him the Akshaya Patra, the inexhaustible vessel.
