Navroz, the Iranian New Year

Navroz, (new day) is an ancient Iranian festival that marks the beginning of the new year.  Navroz is looked upon as the day of the universal dawn of the new hopes and the renewed resolutions. It is said to be the best time of the year as nature renews its life cycle. The moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year and families gather together to observe the rituals.
 Family’s sets out a beautifully laid out table that symbolises health, happiness and prosperity. This is essentially the HAFT-SEEN table.
Food forms an essential part of Navroz celebrations. The HAFT-SEEN table has seven food items beginning with ‘sh’ (in Persian): sharab (wine), shakar (sugar), shir (milk), shirin berenjor (sweet meat), shahad (honey), shirin (sweet), and shira (syrup). The table also lays down seven eatables beginning with‘s’: sirka (vinegar), sumac (spice), sumanu (pudding made from wheat germ), sib (apple), sabzi (green vegetables), senjed (sorb tree berry) and seer (garlic). Each of these items signify creation. Experience the story behind how Irani's celebrate Navroz by booking the navroz table on 23rd March, ask for blessings and indulge in the food on the Navroz table including fruits, mithai and dry fruits


Went for an coffee at a chain store,
Underpaid and underage workers, putting that behind me,

After placing the order I was told what else I could have, in spite of letting them know I was sure I wanted nothing more, I was put through the works, of having to hear what else was there, in the menu, finally taking sympathy to there efforts, I agreed to have some food stuff, and was told “ not available “, so why tell   me what’s on the menu, cause they were taught to do that, and if you did not know it, food is delivered in the evenings, n not in the morning, so whatever you get to eat is stale anyway,  OOPS !    So much for corporatization.   USE YOUR BRIANS, DO'NT JUST BE A PRODUCT OF THE FACTORY.
