A celebration of Life

We do some Parsi-style gorging, even as it readies itself for the yummy Nowruz Festival

The Iranians call it Nowruz. The Parsis, descendants of the ancient Zoroastrians in India, spell it as Nowroz. Each one of them has slightly different traditions, but both communities celebrate the event with the most splendid of tables, groaning under the weight of the most marvellous of dishes. The essence of the festival, that marks the spring equinox on March 21, is to celebrate life amongst family and friends.

    Wishing ever Parsi and Irani Zarthoshti reading this ‘Navroz Mubarak’. May Ahura Mazda bless you and your loved ones with Health, Wealth, & Happiness throughout the coming year.
    May all your aspirations come true and if you would like a Zarthoshti contact in the US email me.
    Ps: Those of you celebrating Navroz in India have an extra morsel of the goodies for me too! 🙂
