Festive swirl ends with fun and worship
Age was indeed no bar as even senior citizens, dressed in traditional Parsi saris, whirled to garba tunes. “When we landed in this country, we wanted to mingle with Indians, as sugar assimilates in milk,” said Perin Davar, a 71-year-old who lives near Vijay Crossroads. “So we celebrate all festivals.”
More than 150 people visited the sanatorium, where two Parsi garba songs were also played. “Our fun-loving community embraced the event with joy,” said Brigadier (retd) Jahangir Anklesaria, the president of the Ahmedabad Parsi Panchayat.
