  1. People celebrate the day with relgious respect and with a cultural touch. They go to nearby hills and spend sometime with their family and friends (what is called “Jangal main Mangal” in Urdu). They prepare a dish called “Samanak” what we call SAIMAN in Gojal, I forgot what it is called in Burushaski.
    Afghanistan is not what is shown on media, people live normal life and enjoy days like these.

  4. Nawruz-e sa-id omed, Yo Rabb ki muborak bod
    Nuzhat be maz-id omed, Ya Rabb ki muborak bod

    Biguzasht pareshoni, az rehmat-i rabboni
    Alam shud nurani, Yo Rabb ki muborak bod

    Chun muzhda-yi id omed, mabda’ bima id omed
    Nowruz-i sa-id omed, Yo Rabb ki muborak bod
