I fasted for the first time in July 1956 when I was 11 years old. A year according to the Islamic calendar, which is lunar, is 12 days shorter than a Gregorian calendar year. Hence, the month of Ramadan rotates around the solar year. Since 1956, this is the third time that we are witnessing Ramadan in peak summer. I have had the privilege of observing Ramadan in Pakistan in my youth, then for 25 years in the Middle East and for the last 15 years in United States. My memories of Ramadan therefore bear a great deal of variety and diversity.
