Ramzan Eid Celebration in Mumbai

Rajen Nair: "India is home to about 150 million Indian Muslim populations which is the second largest Muslim population in the world next to Indonesia.
The month long of fasting ended with the sighting of Moon and the next day on 21st Sep Eid was celebrated with usual religious fervor in Mumbai. At early morning thousands of Muslims filled the streets near Minara Masjid in Masjid,Mumbai to offer their Namaz ( Prayers). Muslims dressed in Traditional Shervani greeted each other after the namaz was over.
It was always my wish to cover through my lens the Ramzan festival and this time it was possible. Some of images taken of the Ramzan celebration in Mumbai."
