Muslim men apply surma to their eyes to keep them cool and clean. The practice takes on a spiritual note during Ramzan. A particular variety of black stone is collected and powered and mixed with rose water to prepare surma. Similarly, Akthar or perfume too is used during the Ramzan month. Both these are available in colourfully and artistic bottles at night bazar in Charminar.
