Who Celebrated Nowrooz
Jamshed Navroz 
is the
Parsi 
New Year celebrated on 21st March every year on the Vernal Equinox when the spring season commences. It is celebrated on the first day of the Fasli calendar followed by the Zoroastrians. The festival has been named after theking of Persia, Jamshed who introduced the solar calculation into the
Parsi 
calendar.The literal meaning of 
Navroz 
 
is ‘new day’ which is derived from the two Persian words,
‘nav’  
 
meaning ‘new’ and
‘roz’  
 
meaning ‘day’.
 
How Is Nowruz Celebrating
 The festival of 
Nowruz 
is celebrated in a grand and splendid fashion.Parsi decorate the entrance of their homes with garlands of roses and jasmines. Thedoorsteps are beautifully decked with auspicious symbols, such as birds, butterflies, fish
 
and stars, and color powder patterns to match the occasion. The Parsis then visit theFire Temple or
 Agiary 
 
and participate in a special prayer known as ‘
Jashan 
’.
(feast) Theyworship
Khorshed 
(sun) and
Meher 
(moon) who are considered to be the two divine
 
beings who presided over the sun and the moon respectively.
 
 The guests are welcomes by sprinkling rose water and rice and applying the traditional
 
tilak 
. The Parsis take special care when it comes to Nowruz food. Several traditionaldelicacies are made for different meals of the day. Breakfast usually consists of ravo,made from milk, sugar and suji and garnished with rose petals and nutmeg powder.
 
 Alternatively, people also make
sev 
, a preparation made from vermicelli which is fried inclarified oil or ghee, then added to sugar syrup and garnished with raisins and almondslivers. As for lunch,
pulao 
plays an integral part of 
Navroz 
celebrations. This is
 
accompanied with plain rice,
moong 
 
dal 
and sweet yoghurt. The traditional drink is
falooda 
, a preparation of milk flavored with rose essence. Another interesting tradition followed on this occasion is the decoration of the tablewith seven foods that begin with
‘sh’  
or
‘sa’  
symbolizing creation or renewal. Thesefoods include
sabzeh 
(sprouts),
samanu 
(a sweet creamy pudding), seeb (apple),
senjed 
(sweet dry fruit of the Lotus tree), seer (garlic), somaq (sumac berries) and
serkeh 
(vinegar). Apart from these foods, the table is also decorated with a copy of 
Gathas 
, a lit lamp, an
afrigan 
, a bowl of water containing live fish, a shallowearthenware plate with sprouted wheat or beans for prosperity, flowers for color, asilver coin for wealth, painted eggs for productivity, and sweets and rosewater in bowls
 
for sweetness and happiness on a table.
