March 21st 2017.
Students of Jalal-abad State University, Medical Faculty enthusiastically participated in the Nouruz festival (Local traditional New year) organized bt the Medical Faculty JASU. They presented the local Indian Foods along with traditional Indian dances and songs in the festival.
Nowruz (iterally “New Day”) is the name of the Iranian New Year,also known as the Persian New Year, which is celebrated worldwide by the Iranians and Turkic peoples, Kyrgyz people along with some other ethno-linguistic groups, as the beginning of the New Year.
Nowruz is the day of the vernal equinox, and marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It usually occurs on 21 March or the previous or following day, depending on where it is observed. 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.
Although having Iranian and religious Zoroastrian origins, Nowruz has been celebrated by people from diverse ethno-linguistic communities for thousands of years. It is a secular holiday for most celebrants that is enjoyed by people of several different faiths, but remains a holy day for Zoroastrians.
