Jashn-i Nowruz: Celebrating the Persian New Year Festival (GCLL in collaboration with the LUMS Culture Society)

The celebration this year features singing Nowruz songs, a master santoor-player Ali Nawaz’s performance, display and results of the egg-painting competition and an exhibition of exquisite Iranian handicrafts. Mr. Jafar Ronas, the Director General of Khana-e Farhang, the Iranian Cultural Institute Lahore, will be the Chief Guest.

Rooted in ancient traditions, Nowruz celebrates the Persian New Year, which marks the first day of spring, the end of winter, and the beginning of the new agrarian cycle. The celebrations generally begin on the night of March 20th, which is known as Chaharshanbe Suri, to symbolize the burning away of the old year and the purification of the soul. The main day of Nowruz falls on March 21st, also the vernal equinox, when day and night are equal in length. Hence the day for celebrations with feasting and the exchange of gifts.
