On this the first day of the “navu varas” new year 1387 Y.Z. we all at Parsi Khabar wish you and your families and loved ones a very Happy New Year.
May this be the year when we find the best in all of us as individuals and as a community globally and locally. Our wishes extend to you, your loved ones, families and friends.
May this also be the year when our community is in the news for all the positives that we bring about, not only for ourselves, but for our neighborhoods, communities, cities and nations.
On August 19, 2005 Parsi Khabar started with one post and a fledgling idea. This has metamorphosed into 7,010 daily email subscribers and over 12 million page views as we enter our 13th year. As the pioneering news aggregator website for the Parsi community, we could not have done without all our readers and supporters. We strive to maintain our standard of bringing you pertinent, accurate and insightful news and opinion. Your comments….all 13,657 of them over the past 12 years are highly appreciated and we look to many more in the years to come.
Our Facebook page just tipped over the Fifty thousandth follower mark and our Parsi Khabar group on Facebook continues to be the place for animated and civil discussions. Twitter and Instagram help complete our social media presence.
However the above are just numbers. What really matters is the friends we have made worldwide. The connections and the virtual introductions that start online have led to amazing personal friendships, not only among Parsis but people of all faiths and beliefs.
As Parsis we are lucky to have an extra set of chromosomes…the Goodwill Chromosome. That had endeared us to whichever community, city, state or nation we have called home. The onus rests on the present and future generations to nurture and build on the “Goodwill Chromosome”.
We take this opportunity to wish you and all your loved ones a happy new year.
From our family to yours may this be the year of happiness and pride in all things Parsi and Zarathoshti !
Aedun Baad, Aedun Taraj Baad.
