Vesu Agiary – Appeal to Professionals


Vesu (originally Village Vesu) is a flourishing suburb of Surat with a functioning Agiary and has its own resident panthaki. Although the number of Zarthusti families living in the village has been slowly declining, the number of Zarthustis staying in the surrounding areas and using the Agiary is growing.

The Agiary is close to a hundred years old and inspite of all the efforts of the trustees and well wishers, over the years the structure has gone weak and in need of major repair. A local family has pledged a decent sum for the repair / renovation of the agiary and is requesting the assistance of philanthropically inclined Zarthusti professionals to come forward and be a part of the team to take the project forward.

We need a company or individuals qualified in civil construction work to assess the work required and offer their services (own &/or company) to take this project to the next level.

Please urgently contact Sorab Vesuna <sorabvesuna@gmail.com>

Medical Aid Assistance Sought


Pls help Navzad as it maybe a cure for other hopefuls too.
To all my family and friends around the world,
The members of the Australian Zoroastrian Association are joining forces to urgently raise funds to support the Engineer family in Sydney.
Navzad Engineer has been undergoing treatment for brain tumours over the past few years, and as part of ongoing treatment, has been recommended a new medication available in the US at a cost of $20,00 every three weeks, in addition to ongoing expenses.
This treatment is not subsidised by the Australian government, and both his parents are now full-time carers for their son as he requires round-the-clock care. As such, the family is under huge emotional and financial distress. It would be much appreciated if you could please spread the word and donate generously. Bank details are as follows:

Financial Institution: ANZ Bank
Account Number: 012266 198912143
Account Name: Mr & Mrs V Engineer
I would request all to forward these details as someone can surely help.
Thank you

Tatas spent Rs 1k cr on corporate social responsibility activities in FY14


CaptureIn what could be the highest CSR spend by anIndian conglomerate, the Tata Group spent Rs 1,000 crore oncorporate social responsibility (CSR) in 2013-14. If one were to exclude the salt-to-software enterprise’s philanthropic trusts, the Tata Group companies spent Rs 660 crore on CSR in the just ended fiscal. The diversified Indian multinational’s CSR spend was well above 2% of its net profit, a minimum requirement for an Indian company under the Companies Act.

A significant amount of the total CSR spend by the Tata Group has gone into skill development, health and education, with Tata Steel emerging as the biggest spender within the group. Among other Indian conglomerates, the $40-billion Aditya Birla Group spent Rs 200 crore on CSR in fiscal 2014, which is a little over 2% of the net profit from India.
