Navroz Mubarak

Navroz Mubarak to all of you! This festival is celebrated amongst alot of countries and cultures worldwide, so I really donot know about the actual significance, but yes it does mark the beginning of spring and the new year.
I have childhood memories of going to Jamatkhaana with Babba and Meera wearing our new dresses, which often Ma would sit and sew all night :) All the Aunties decked up in their white wedding saris, lots of yummy food for Nandi and yeah instead of the usual offering (Juro) distributed, we would get tiny packets of wheat grain and mishri (crystallized lumps of sugar) and a one Shilling coin too, all signifying good health, wealth and prosperity to all in the new year. 
I brought home these gorgeous mangoes, the first for this season and this is my Juro this year :) Wishing you all loads of health, yummy food and prosperity this Navroz! 

Lots of Love!!
