India is blinging into the celebration of Parsi’s New Year on Thursday. Zoroastrians in India are celebrating the day, also known as Navroz or Jamshed-i-Nouroz. The celebration marks the first day of the Parsi calendar.

Parsis celebrate the moment of this New Year with a lot of zest and zeal. As a symbol of prosperity and longevity, there is a tradition to decorate the table with auspicious items and image of Zarathustra.

The festival signifies renewing spirits with love, kindness, positivity, and peace, cleansing our souls from our sins and asking for repentance.  

Like other cultures, Parsis too celebrate their New Year with fervor. It signifies a new beginning and hence the Parsis clean their houses, decorate them with flowers and rangoli, wear new clothes and visit the fire temples, also known as ‘Agiary’  to offer their gratitude and make a sacred offering of fruits, flowers, sandalwood and milk to the fire.
