Vulture Conservation Project by Nature Club Surat

“Vulture Culture” in NCS




From last decade, all nature lovers and environmentalist, in the whole world are very much concern & worried about a very serious issue of enormous declination in Vulture population in India & subcontinents. Lots of efforts have been putting up by many governmental & non-governmental organizations in India, which are still not enough. Here I would like to draw attention to mammoth efforts of dedicated volunteers from Nature Club Surat, working days & nights to save our last & the important elements in food chain.

Where in lies real freedom real independence of humanity?

Difference in the Avestan and the present ideas about the same.


This article is taken from the book “Essential Origins of Zoroastrianism” (Pg 20-22)

By Dr. Framroze Chiniwalla


The Human Mind and Reason need Patha:

The human mind is beset with Druj activities. It fails in the nick of time. The human reason is also duped more than once. If the human mind and reason could have thought for themselves properly, then why should they have been born on this mundane earth? To allow it (the mind) to act as it wills shows only the allegiance to druj meaning the faults of the flesh, called ignorance and passions. A young man or woman free to act as he or she wills is only allowed to be powerfully and unremittingly imprisoned by conceit and defects.

A Peep Into The Domestic Life Of The Parsis A Hundred Years Ago

P.N. Tavaria


  [This article is taken from a book “A Manual of Khshnoom” by P.N. Tavaria].

         Often people ask today, where has our “PARSIPANU” gone and what are the reasons of our gradual decline as an ethnic group? The simple answer is that we have discarded our own lofty tarikats and instead chosen to ape the Western Culture. Well read on and more importantly let us learn and imbibe something of our own past ways of life. – Editor]
