International Day of Nowruz in
Days to go:
International Day of Nowruz is a global observance recognized by the United Nations, marking the celebration of the Persian New Year, also known as Nowruz. It essentially symbolizes a moment of new beginnings, spring's arrival, and celebrates the universal values of peace, solidarity, and goodwill among people regardless of their cultural backgrounds. This observance is particularly recognized for promoting diversity, tolerance, and respect for cultural traditions and heritage, fundamentally contributing to international peace and security.
Historically, Nowruz, meaning 'new day', is a tradition originating from ancient Persia over 3,000 years ago and is celebrated by approximately 300 million people worldwide today, including a substantial number in India. Being a multicultural country, India's diverse populace includes a significant population of Iranians, Parsis, and other communities that observe Nowruz, and thus the day has considerable importance. On this day, the UN acknowledges the vital role that these traditions, inclusive of Nowruz, play in enhancing India's cultural diversity and fostering mutual respect and harmony.
In India, the celebration of the International Day of Nowruz is mostly localized within the Parsi and Iranian communities. Its observation is similar to practices worldwide, involving the arrangement of the 'Haft-Seen' table that symbolizes new life, prosperity, love, and happiness. Additionally, Indian adherents also incorporate traditional rituals and adorn their homes and streets to bring in the spring season joyously. To conclude, International Day of Nowruz coincides with the vernal equinox that marks the beginning of spring, typically falling on March 21, mirroring the spirit of renewal echoed across the Indian subcontinent through a similar festival, 'Holi'.
