Norwegian Ph.D. student looking for Parsi research assistants in Bombay

I’ve earlier enjoyed a research visit among the Parsis in Mumbai (2008), and will now return for 6 weeks this upcoming February. I’m looking for two (or more) Parsi individuals (of both sexes) that would be interested in working together with me as research assistants for a short period of time. The list below is a preliminary sketch of requirements, but is open to flexible modifications as per the interest(s) and time resources of the assistant.
Research time span: 4 weeks (20 Feb – 19 March, on selected days during this period depending on the assistant’s schedule and wishes)
Time duration: 2-4 hour shifts (X many shifts, depending on the assistant’s schedule and wishes)
Type of work: Observe religious worship at an agiary (in agreement with the specific panthak and head priest)
Compensation: Hour based, payment according to contract (INR 200 pr.hour, negotiable – contact me for more specific information)
