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.

    Tata is opening a Nano plant , would appreciate if you could direct efforts to employing these Parsis at the plant. Teach them interviewing skills , application skills and help raise them by their bootstraps.
