On the first day of Eid al Fitr holidays, around 45 of KIC faculty and staff e-gathered to greet each other with Eid Al Fitr.
Although social distancing took its toll on the traditional Eid rituals, recently emerged practices added a new dimension to celebrations. Being conscious of the communication tools that are available at hand, has enabled us to hang out with people who were virtually unreachable before.
As KIC president Dr. Assem al-Hajj mentioned, “the situation is more of a revelation to us, as now we are aware of things we can do. In the future “normal” circumstances, we will carry on most of the acquired habits that we are forced to use today.
The e-gathering proved to be a positive novelty, and definitely, it will become common practice not only on an organizational level but also on a personal one.
