My Favorite Month

There are many reasons why I love the month of Ramadan. But what I love the most is how I could go home at 15.45 at the latest – provided there are no emergencies (praying there’s none till the end of the month).

This is made possible by the fact that I live in a country with the most Muslims population in the world (we’re not an Islamic State though), and that we (all the Head of Divisions and even our Bureau Head) conspired to stick to that time and conveyed this very important message ‘very politely and tactfully of course’ to our Secretary General.

The magic mantra is ‘this is the month of piety’.
