Festivals This Month

15 -August           Independence Day
Independence Day, observed annually on 15 August, is a National Holiday in India commemorating the nation's independence from the British Empire on 15 August 1947. India attained independence following an Independence Movement noted for largely nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience led by the mahatma Gandhi and Indian National Congress (INC). Independence day coincided with the partition of India, in which the British Indian Empire was divided along religious lines into the Dominions of India and Pakistan

18-August            Parsi New Year
Although the Parsi New Year originated in Persia, many people in India celebrate it as well. Worldwide, people commemorate the holiday on the first day of the Zoroastrian calendar’s first month. This falls on March 21st. In India, on the other hand, people follow the Shahanshahi calendar, which means the New Year celebration happens in the later months of the year. This changes every year since the calendar doesn’t account for leap years.
This is also known as Jamshed Navroz.
