Ramadhan "between the trap of comsumerism and the divinity"
I just got home from the grocery store, and that’s make me crazy, I need to stand queue up for two hours just to buy a bottle of milk. Yes, tomorrow is the first day of ramadhan, This means a crowded situation in grocery , shopping mall and the streets are jammed. Seems like everyone in Jakarta going out for shooping this night.
Sometime, this phenomenon made me confused. Why, people looks greedy and fought like tomorow the world will be end.
From which I know, Ramadhan is the great month in a year for muslim follower, because they believe, in this month if you do good, the sins in a year will be forgiven. Yes , a whole month to refrain for evil passions and vices behavior. Pause everything to remember blessing from God and be grateful.
Everyone seems to forget important essence in, and inadvertence is exploited by the capitalism. How the market makes the divinity commodities to justify consumerism.
Shall we let this continue to happen…?
