The D N Modi Shahenshahi Atash Behram in Surat celebrated its 200th Salgreh on 1st October, 2023, with a ‘Maachi’ at 7:00 am in Havan geh, attended by over 500 Parsis. The highlight of the salgreh celebrations was the ‘Kavyani Zando’ which was paraded through the streets near the Atash Behram with a decent Parsi population at 7:30am. The Parsees garlanded the ‘Zanda’, performed achhu michhu, donated cash or grains, and distributed sweets. As the procession returned to the Atash Behram, the Parsees sang ‘Chhaiye Ame Jarthosti’, as the flag was hoisted atop the Atash Behram. A ‘Khushali nu Jasan’ was performed headed by Vada Dasturjis of Udwada and Surat later in the day.
