This is the year we also inducted a new team member !

Ava is a one year old toddler, full of life, with the biggest smile known to mankind. Ava calls Mehernaaz “mommie” and Shirrin and arZan “mami and mama”. When not playing or sleeping or eating or doing toddler tasks; she plays the most important role here on Parsi Khabar. She and those of her generation are the reason why we run this website. The hope is that when Ava grows up, she will have a ready reference about her identity, culture and ethnicity in a rapidly evolving global village, that will be the world of her times.

On behalf of my co-authors aVa, Mehernaaz, Shirrin and myself; we wish you a very Happy New Year 1384 Y.Z.
