I have a friend from India who filled me in on Ramdamadingalong. Sure they fast during the day but they eat like pigs as soon as the sun goes down. If I had a big old steak, a loaded baked potato, a salad and a couple of slices of apple pie, I could probably stand to miss the next couple of meals without any problem.

But it is not just about stuffing your face or the quantity one eats.
These folks are not on diets like Westerners, they have just enough to eat but I was trying to drive home the point that Ramadan is a tense period in general only to be exacerbated by strife, conflict and civil war.

Last year, I saw a picture of Syrian “rebels” sitting down to a Ramadan break fast meal. The long communal table was decorated with plates, salads and lamb but the centerpiece on that table, every 2 meters were a teepee rack of AK-47s...just in case they had to interrupt their meal with some warfare...
