It’s Pateti: A new year day for Parsi people
Ahmedabad, DeshGujarat, 19th of August, 2008
It’s ‘Pateti’ festival today. This festival is celebrated in Gujarat to welcome Parsi new year.
Parsis left Iran as refugees and landed to the shore of Gujarat in year 755 A.D. Their saga of achievements and contributions to India is well known.
On Pateti day here is a video of Ratan Tata’s famous Ahmedabad speech ‘Stupid if you are not in Gujarat’. This speech was delivered in January 2007 at ‘Vibrant Gujarat investors summit’ in Ahmedabad organized by Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
We salute Parsi peoples’ contributions to Gujarat and India and wish them for their new year.
