Motibai was born to an affluent Parsi family of Bombay and was brought up in that city. She was the first woman to pass out from the Grant Medical College. The year she qualified as a doctor, industrialist Ranchhodlal Chhotalal founded a hospital for women in Ahmedabad. He invited Motibai to head the hospital – the Victoria Jubilee Hospital. She accepted the offer and worked there for the next four decades. The British government later conferred the ‘Kaisar-e-Hind’ title on her for her contributions.
Motibai was not only the first lady doctor in Gujarat, but also a social reformer.

Served at most Parsi events and occasions, ‘Chicken Farchas’ are a uniquely Parsi cuisine serving of crisp on the outside and moist on the inside chicken-pieces, much like a spiced version of the western concept of ‘fried chicken’.
Rather heavy in its most authentic version; this deviously delicious, can’t-eat-just-one-piece crunchy treat; is prepared with chicken thighs or drumsticks, marinated in a typical Farcha spice blend, rolled in home-style flavored bread crumbs or all-purpose flour, followed by a generous coating of spiced hand-beaten eggs. The chicken Farchas are finally deep fried and served hot.
The result can only be described as joyful mouthfuls of ‘Parsi Chicken Farcha’ excellence.

The Parsee Fire Temple on Queen’s Road, consecrated in February 1926, is a rare Iranian-style architecture in the city. The connection of Parsees, who worship nature, with India dates back to the 9th century and Bangalore accepted a section of them, allowing them to keep their traditions and customs alive.
“For a small and fast depleting community like the Parsees, there are hardly 700 community members in Bangalore,” says Bangalore Parsee Zoroastrian Anjuman Trustee member and chartered accountant Yezdi N Unvalla.
