August 8, 2014 is the first day of Muktad or to call it correctly “Farvardegan” per the Shehanshahi Parsi Calendar.
Parsis around the world and especially in India remember the dear departed of their family. Special prayers are offered at the Agiaries and in homes. The 10th day of the Muktad culminates into the Shehenshahi Parsi New Year.
We at Parsi Khabar are happy to inform you that we will be bringing about the second edition of the very popular series “The Everyday Parsi” starting tomorrow.
Over the next few days you will read about what the muktad days meant to these individuals. Be it a certain ritual, memories, occassions or one event that has stood out in their memory.
The people who are invited to write in are like you and me…everyday Parsis.
They are from India and the world wide Diaspora. They represent the youth of today and leaders and elders of the community. Their views are varied and diverse. And it’s going to be another round of very interesting reading.
