Nowruz 2022: Nowruz, which means “New Day”, originated in Zoroastrianism, an Iranian religion

This year's Nowruz is officially on 20 March 2022. But the day is celebrated in late July or August in India because the Parsi community follows the Shahenshahi calendar, 

That's the reason why the celebration of the day has now shifted almost 200 days from its original Spring Equinox date

The 13-day celebration begins with the vernal equinox when the sun crosses the equator. 

The word Nowruz is derived from a combination of Persian words now-meaning 'new' and ruz-meaning 'day'. According to historians, there are several foundations myths for Nowruz in Iranian mythology. 

The foundation of Nowruz was credited to the mythical Iranian King Jamshid by the Shahnameh, which is a long epic poem by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between 977 and 1010 CE.

The United Nations recognises March 21 as the “International Day of Nowruz”.
