The holy month of Ramadan has begun

Today, the month of Ramadan began for Muslims, in which believers of the Islamic faith around the world fast during the daylight hours. Fasting ends with Eid.

Ramadan is a month of purification of the spirit, mind and body in which Muslims give up food, drink and other bodily pleasures, do not commit immoral acts and avoid anger.

The goal is to come out of Ramadan better, healthier, with sins forgiven. The first day of fasting is on Monday, March 11, and the last on April 9.

Every year, Ramadan starts 10 to 12 days earlier because the Islamic calendar is actually a lunar Hijri calendar where months have 29 or 30 days.

On the occasion of Ramadan, most of the heads of the Islamic religious community sent a message to the believers, indicating that by fasting the believer in practice confirms the connection with his Creator, raises awareness of goodness, peace, solidarity, care for man and reforms his personality, preparing him to always be at the service of good.

Actress - naturist Ljubica Adžović guessed on the map to feed her 9 children. A meeting with Emir Kusturica and his life changed!

Ljubica Adžović is an actress who I watched in the productions "Dom za besenje" and "Black cat, white cat", directed by Emir Kusturica. The well-known director said that for him filming with Ljubica was "the most exciting experience in his career", and many people don't know that she was a naturist and that she was chosen to star in the film fortune teller.

A Roma woman in whom Kusturica saw "good potential for acting", she played the role of Baba Kadi in the film "Home for the Mad". Kusturica found Ljubica in a Roma house in the small town of Zaograd, not far from Sutomore. He was fascinated by her natural talent and charisma, launched him into the world of film, and she was grateful to him for that.

Her talent was so authentic that many saw her as a true professional. Ljubica received an award for her role at the Cannes Film Festival in 1992. After this success, Ljubica appeared again in Kusturica's film "Black Cat, White Cat". In that project, she called Branka Katić, a colleague she worked with, "a true granddaughter". Although she was offered roles in Germany, she refused because she wanted to work only with Kusturica. Despite her success in the world of film, Ljubica Adžović decided to return to her previous profession - reading fortunes from cards on the beach in Sutomore.

She had nine children, and no one was able to find out the exact number of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. When I asked her why she was looking at the map, she said "to feed all his children".

She was born in Skopje and lived in Bar. Towards the end of her life, she stayed for a long time in France and Sweden. Not long after her return to Montenegro in 2006, she began a short illness at the age of 82.

Emir Kusturica, who was a close associate and friend of Ljubica Adžović, expressed deep regret for her death. "She was a talent that is rarely born." I loved working with Ljubica. The gift was an unforgettable pleasure and experience for me as a director. "I am sorry for your untimely death," he said to Ljubica.
