English: Muslims looking for the new moon to mark the Eid al fitr, the end of the month of Ramadhan (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I cannot recall any kind of jealousy I had with anyone outside my family. Inside my family there has been instances,when I rebelled.I thought it was unfair. I cannot be sure if it is jealousy or partiality.Maybe an outsider will view it as border-line jealousy.

One year my father told my mother to buy new clothes only for my big sister for the second eid.All the others will have to wear clothes that we got for our first eid. I told my mother it is not fair. Why will she be treated differently,she should also wear the same clothes. Otherwise she has to buy new clothes for me too. My Mom knew she has to give in to my demand,or the situation might go out of hand.

I felt terrible for my other siblings,but the rule was made by my parents and I have to fight against it. I got my new clothes,the rest of my siblings didn’t dare fuss. At the time I didn’t know the phrase:”Squeaky wheel Gets The Grease”.

What do you think,will you call this act of mine ,”JEALOUSY”?  It is your call.

Please Note: Eid is a celebration we have,twice a year. One is after the month of Ramadan,we call it Eid-al -Fitr, the second one comes after two months and ten days after the first one,it is Eid-uz- Zuha. In the second one an animal is slaughtered  e.g cow,camel,goat,these are the common ones.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this.

    It is indeed difficult to understand the reasoning of one’s parents. I’d like to think that, most often, most peoples’ parents act with good intentions.

    All good wishes,

    robert
