Subject : A forgotten People: The Parsis of Rural Gujarat
Last January, I accompanied the Young Rathestars to rural Gujarat. The Young Rathestars are a Zoroastrian charity in Mumbai that provide financial assistance to poor Parsis in Bombay and other places in India. The purpose of their trip was to distribute food grains, other essentials and financial aid to over 70 rural Zoroastrian families in the villages around Ankleshwar.
