London, 26/03/2017. Today, I followed Javed and his daughter to the "Central Asian Spring Festival UK" held at UCL Main Quad (University College London).

This year, representatives of six countries are coming together to celebrate this grand occasion>>, <<Our mission is to promote diversity by building cultural and charitable ties between the UK and countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus>>.<br />

It marks the first day of the first month – Farvardin - in the Iranian calendar […]>> (Source Wikipedia.org - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nowruz).<br />
