UNESCO PAZOR’s exhibition & festival…… ROSHAN: A Journey of the Parsi Zoroastrians
I attach below mail from Dr. Shernaz Cama, Director of UNESCO’s sponsored PAZOR Foundation in New Delhi, regarding the proposed Zoroastrian Exhibition & Festival scheduled for early 2011.
Shernaz’s draft proposal for the event is attached, Draft Proposal for Exhibition on the Parsi Zoroastrians
I urge you to please read it and should you have any comments or inputs, she will be delighted to hear from you. Dr.Cama states, “it is a huge endeavor and I request the support of every member of our community across the Globe”. “The more ideas we gather, the better it is and finally it is meant as a participative exposition on, by and for the community”.
I am sure many of you will have some important comments & inputs to offer towards making the event a big success.
I shall also be greatly obliged if you’d pass this request on to others whom you know who would be in a position to help.
Dear Friends and Members,

Zoroastrian on the ECRL it is now official
I returned from Lille , France where we had the E European Council of Religious Leaders (ECRL) Council meeting.
Delighted to inform you that the Zarathushties now have a full membership seat on the council in their own right, (previously I was there ex officio) Not only was I elected to the council but on to the Executive Committee.
This in a way was a special honour to us for as you know there are six groups , Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants, Jews, Muslims and the “Other”
The Other Group has members from the world faiths new to Europe comprising Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs and Zoroastrians.
The Executive is made up of one member from each of the six groups.
The Buddhists, Hindus, and Sikhs nominated myself to represent them on the Ex. Com. This shows the great trust they have in our community, we can all be proud of the legacy of our forefathers.
with love and peace

Government of India has an online Grievance forum; Can you imagine this happening in INDIA?
Government of India has an online Grievance forum at http://darpg- grievance. nic.in/
The government wants people to use this tool to highlight the problems they faced while dealing with Government officials or Departments like Passport Office, Electricity board, BSNL/MTNL, Railways, BMC, etc.
So use this grievance forum and educate others who don’t know about this facility.
This way we can at least raise our concerns instead of just talking about the ‘ System’ in India.
