Happy Norooz :-)


wow .. its nice to know that Hindus(not all but some sect) also celebrate new year this time. (If I be specific then it was on Monday).

If I know correct about Roman calendar then April was the first month of the year.

No(new) rooz(day) simply means new day and marks the first day of spring. This day was and is the most important day for the Indo-Iranians which goes back to ancient Iran several thousand years before Islam, Christianity and Judaism.

It is tightly connected to the Zoroastrian religion which is still practiced in small numbers in today Iran.

In India, Zorostrain knows as Parsis and I guess India has the highest number of that community in the world.

I didn't know that the persian influence event went that far. On the other hand the area where the Tatars live today is not their place of origin. In former times I think they were much nearer to the persian hemisphere and hence under more influence of the persian civilization.

Just a theory .
