President Kovind greets people on the occasion of Navroz
President of India Ram Nath Kovind, in his released message on the occasion of Navroz, being celebrated by the Parsi community today, said, "On the auspicious occasion of the Parsi New Year, I extend warm greetings and good wishes to all my fellow citizens, especially my Parsi brothers and sisters."

He added, "The Parsi community has made a valuable contribution towards national development and the making of modern India. The celebration of the festival is an occasion for all of us to come together and feel proud of our composite culture and pluralistic society."

"May this unique festival, heralding the New Year, bring happiness and prosperity to all and strengthen our commitment to harmony and fraternity," he wished.

Zarathustra is considered to be the Parsi father figure, who gave the tenets of the Parsi way of life and Friedrich Nietzsche has compiled his sayings in a book 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra'. Some of his one-line sayings are as follows:

  • And once you are awake, you shall remain awake eternally.

  • Become who you are!

  • One repays a teacher badly if one always remains nothing but a pupil.

  • Silence is worse; all truths that are kept silent become poisonous.

  • The higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.

  • The lonely one offers his hand too quickly to whomever he encounters.

  • You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame; how could you rise anew if you have not first become ashes?
