Research on Parsis
Natasha Sarkar requires the below information. It seems to be an intresting topic. So if any one has answers, would request you to write in to her and also on the Blog so that we may all get a bit more knowledgable too.
I wish to procure information about the response of the Parsi community during the plague epidemics that ravaged India from 1896 to 1925. I’m doing research on the history of the plague epidemics in India which was part of the third worldwide pandemic which started in 1894- China and spread across the world. As such, I wish to learn more about the response of the Parsi community—doctors and laypersons to plague policies.
I would appreciate it if you could direct me to private archives,institutio ns or libraries where I might locate the historical contributions of Parsis during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Does the Bombay Parsi Panchayat maintain such records?
Any help would be invaluable.
Thank you so much.
