Can we revive the Dokhma at Surat ?
These are a few snaps of our Dokhma at village Damka near Hazira, Dist Surat, (About 20 Kms from Surat city) which had been built in the year 1915. It is really constructed in a very scientific way. Today it is just a history, as it is lying unused on a barren land, which ofcourse can be revived with a little refurbishment and plantations around. The area is thriving with good number of vultures, moreover the Nature Club Surat,(www.natureclubsurat.org) is working hard since 2005 on vulture conservation project and have attained success by increasing its population. Why can’t we parsis extend a helping hand to the nature club to increase vulture population in its natural habitat and revive this dokhma in its real sense by reviving the missing component of the system “Vultures” ?
