  • Another way of doing it is when you leave your old home you must carry 1/2 filled matki with water and the other half you must fill with water at the new house. You may if you like also put a small red cloth over the matki and then put the coconut on it. On the matki you may do Kharptu/swastik or just 5 tilas of Harad and kankoo.

  • thank you ms tantra, you reminded me of my moms.

    she insisted on doing this, whenever any of us shifted into a new house.
    when my brother hoshang and his wife zarine shifted into their new home after marrying, she took all of us all the way to andheri, to the new house and we did jhadoo,katko,chok,toran and she placed the varadhiyo, did the kharapta on all doors and was so very happy.
    after a few days, when we went for the jashan, we saw the wheat sprouting and exclaimed….”mamma, aa soo chhe?”
    she smiled and said, “its a good sign.aa gherma maro dikro ane enoo kutumb ghanoo fulse ane false.”,
    and she was right…my brother and bhabhi have been v happy..god bless them.
    and i wish every parsee family would follow this small ritual.
