“paradise.(being the) exclusive possession of Muslims” So the state of Mecca a metaphor for the confluence and convergence among the faithful often typified which version of Islam held sway over the world at that particular time Despite a Saudi desire to erase pre-Islamic history and authorise the telling of one story the author has used the events in Mecca its pagan origins the ancient myth of Abraham’s son Ishmael and his mother Hagar settling there and subsequent battles for the control of the city to script an impressive account As a writer Sardar brings lightness and humour to thorny issues For instance the first chapter is about his attempts to do an old world Haj on donkey-back with a gay donkey whom he names Genghis Needless to say the journey has to be abandoned for the highway and its fumes He writes incisively about the immensely complex and often bloody battle for the Muslim mind after Muhammed’s demise the formation of sects the growth of different schools of law and theology and their interplay There is no dearth of historical detail on the Caliphs Bedouins Meccans spiritual leaders merchants Sultans shlf1314n begums and even camels as they shaped the story of Mecca and its most elaborate ritual Mecca’s is not a simple story and never was It was a centre for pagan faith before Muhammed’s time; the forty-year-old Muhammed found his calling in a cave in the city But it was also the place that resisted Muhammed’s call initially and forced him to seek refuge in Yathrib which became known as Medina very much the cultural and intellectual capital of its time As home to the Kaaba seven rounds of which are among the five prescriptions for able Muslims it draws billions of Muslims the world over The author outlines how centuries of Meccan life were about being a welcoming confluence for innumerable races colours and kinds of Muslims and the city’s fascinating and often troubled journey to a more sectarian present when non-Muslims are excluded from its bounds And it is in discussing how the city changed its character that the author truly comes into his own The recent disquiet in the Islamic world over suggestions made in August by a Saudi scholar to “relocate” the Prophet’s grave in Medina to a place where it would not be identifiable without a tombstone has restarted the debate on how Saudi Arabia’s bid to impose its idea of Islam firmly on Islamic heritage under its control Sardar’s book takes this aspect of modern-day Mecca head-on It is an act of courage to say what he does especially as a believer with Mecca as the centre of his own personal and spiritual compass He speaks of how the symbolic relevance of Mecca — to bring together Muslims from across the world and underline egalitarianism as the cementing bond among Muhammed’s followers whoever they may be — has been reduced by its present Saudi managers to a “literal monolith” He speaks of how the current managers of Mecca have “little regard for anything other than the purity of their literalism no concern for the history cultural property art and culture debate and dissent and the diversity and plurality of what Mecca ought to be” For all the latest

(Source: Deepti Unni) Related News I was never a diet faddist As a skinny child and twiggy adult I was a firm believer in the live-to-eat school of thought A miraculous metabolism meant that I could stuff my face with upwards of 3000 calories a day and have nothing to show for it except for a small burp Until my mid-20s I weighed a meagre 48kg that sat comfortably on my 5’5″ frame Then life and my body caught up And the payback was brutal My metabolism slowed and even though I’d begun watching what I eat my weight ballooned Out went the snacking and fried food KFC and McDonald’s but my waistline didn’t get the memo By early 2016 I weighed a whopping 70kg and I began to really feel every gram of that weight Something had to be done and since I’m L-A-Z-Y that something was not exercise Instead I decided that it would be a diet that would save me With diets it’s hard to know where to start The Internet is chock-full of ideas that range from the batshit – the master cleanse a 10-day lemon juice maple syrup and cayenne pepper diet – to the downright dangerous such as death-dealing diet pills After much research I found my diet soulmate thanks to a gif that chronicled a woman’s incredible weight-loss journey I’d chanced upon the LCHF (low carb high fat) diet Read More At its simplest in an LCHF diet you restrict the amount of carbs you eat so your body turns to burning fat for energy which I had a plentiful supply of I could eat all the butter ghee olive oil coconut oil cheese and bacon I wanted Bacon On a diet I could eat pretty large portions of meat I was sold What I couldn’t eat was any form of sugar or starch Bye-bye rice potatoes chapattis dosas sandwiches chips chocolate cake biryani croissants pizza colas beer I mean how hard could it be But carbs are insidious buggers No really think of three breakfast dishes (that aren’t egg) that are carb free Lunch Dinner Suddenly I was thinking of food every waking minute planning my next meal The induction days were the worst As your body uses up all the stored carbs and begins to transition into ketosis the fat-burning stage you begin to experience flu-like symptoms — headaches nausea the sniffles They go away soon enough but then the sugar withdrawal hits And you turn into a raving monster Your mood swings between deep depression and homicidal mania Your colleagues begin to look like cake slices Your neighbour resembles a macaron In those first few days in desperation I turned to the Internet for recipes I tried Bulletproof coffee a scintillating mix of coffee butter and coconut oil that’s more automotive lubricant than breakfast Chia pudding seemed really popular with the Keto crowd It involved dumping spoonful of chia seeds in coconut milk adding a bit of cocoa powder and artificial sweetner and waiting for it to all come together It’s great if you enjoy chocolate-flavoured snot Another recipe for “fat bombs” (Speed up metabolism Support your thyroid Boost your energy) suggested putting peanut butter coconut oil and cocoa in a muffin tin and freezing it Now I’m a Mallu but there was no way I was going to be nibbling on frozen coconut oil for a snack The diet had one thing going for it though Proteins and fats are the satiating elements of food so you were never hungry which helped stave off cravings Even so by week two of ketosis the diet had invaded my dreams I’d wake up in a cold sweat from nightmares of being chased by giant slices of pizza Sometimes the dreams were vivid like the time I dreamt I ate a ham sandwich and could actually taste the sandwich when I woke up Cheat days were impossible because it kicked my body out of ketosis and it took a good week to get back into the diet I stopped going out with friends because it was so hard to find something to eat on a normal restaurant menu Within a month I was carb-less friendless…weightless The truth though was that it completely worth the pain In a month I’d dropped 3kg in two seven I felt healthier more mentally active than I had in a decade Gone were the constant hunger pangs the need to shovel chips and processed foods into my mouth every evening I was calmer happier and more energetic than I could ever remember being And for all those who howled “Cholesterol” and “Heart disease” at me turns out my HDL that’s the good cholesterol improved dramatically while my LDL fell In six months I’ve dropped 13kgs with two more to go to hit my target weight of 55kg And in the meantime I’ve developed recipes to carry me through the dark days like a spectacular strawberry cheesecake smoothie that’s full of good fats and a guiltless keto cheesecake with a coconut and almond flour base that could take on a real cheesecake any day Will I be able to sustain this diet forever Probably not Will I go back to eating processed crap like I used to No I know I won’t be able to help the occasional slip but it’s nice to know I can go back to ketosis any time like a good friend I can depend on to look out for me A strawberry cheesecake smoothie You can make this low-cal by skipping the cream cheese (Source: Deepti Unni) STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE SMOOTHIE Ingredients 100g – Strawberries
