Nowruz to be gloriously celebrated, Bawary

Ministry of Information and Culture (MoIC) reports about glorious holding Nowruz festival in eight parts of the capital, Kabul in coordination with other government administrations.
“Every year, some plans are being considered by the ministry of information and culture to celebrate New Year and hold Nowruz festival,” deputy MoIC on cultural affairs Prof. Mohammad Rasul Bawary told The Kabul Times.
This year, the ministry shared its plans with the presidential office, after which a commission has been formed, as it has already started its activities, he added.
The commission consists of the ministries of foreign affairs, higher education, information and culture, commerce and industries, women affairs, agriculture, irrigation and livestock, public health, education, and some other government related administrations, he went on to say.
To help improve holding Nowruz festival, eleven meetings have so far been held, he continued.
He added the commission had decided to hold Nowruz festival in eight parts of the city, such as Zazay, Ahmad Shah and Khair khana parks, Temorshahi, Women and Babur gardens, Marefat High School, and Paghman Palace, during which different shows of music, theatre, handicrafts, games such as cricket and wrestling will be held.
On different believes, he said we would celebrate Nowruz as beginning of a new year, as it is a cultural day and not related to any religions.
“We will also arrange some programs until Asad 28 ‘Afghanistan’s 100th Independence Day,’” he said.
This comes as Nowruz is annually widely celebrated in Afghanistan and the people hold picnics in any parts of the country. As the Afghan New Year approaches, there is warmth in the overall environment of Afghanistan. Many families travel to Northern Province of Balkh, where they take part in the numerous colorful festivities in the beautiful and ancient city of Mazar-e-Sharif, home to the famous blue mosque of Afghanistan and some others celebrate New Year in their respective villages and cities.
