Behnoush Hajian: "I'm an Iranian student living in the United States. These days people are getting ready for new year in Iran (Nowruz) celebrated on spring equinox. Growing wheat sprouts is a tradition of Nowruz symbolising rebirth. I did it too to celebrate this beautiful spring coming to New England after a harsh winter."
