New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended Navroz greetings to the Parsi community on Wednesday.

"Navroz Mubarak to everybody, especially to our small, much-loved and over-achieving Parsi community. May the coming year be happy and fulfilling," Kovind said in a tweet.

Navroz marks the beginning of a new year and the first day of spring for the Parsi community and is celebrated on March 21, every year. Nowruz or Navroz is a festival that has its origins in Persia and is predominantly observed in many Muslim and Zoroastrian cultures.
