We try to wear
What’s in fashion
Regardless of where
India Korea China
Phillipines or Bangladesh
Labourers sweat on
Pennies a day
Toiling away from
Sunrise to setting of sun
In harsh ill-ventilated conditions
On making clothes
So that we look
Primp & proper everyday!
They work their fingers
To the bone
Sweat covering rest
Of the body
Inhaling stale dirty air
Day in day out
So that their loved ones
Cannot breakfast lunch
Or dinner do without
Innocent lives were lost
Some even lost their precious limbs
So we can shop from
High end stores!!!
Greed is our form of sin
The more one has
The more one wants
In these circumstances
It’s the innocent victims
Unaware were caught
Our children are
Well fed well clad
With no care
In the world
The thought of
Poor innocent children
Running around hungry & bare!

This delightful compilation captures and records — lest future generations growing up in the West forget — priceless heirlooms, including over 1000 Parsi and Persian quotations and fun phrases to timeless words of wisdom, ingenious home remedies for all ailments, and nostalgic memories of growing up in Parsi ‘baugs.’ It is a great way to remind and regale those who grew up on the Indian subcontinent and Iran about a part of their heritage they left behind. New generations born and raised in the Western Diaspora will be enlightened and entertained, and all readers will appreciate the wisdom our parents and grandparents dispensed in their own incomparable way.
Finally some one has recognized the truth and called the spade a spade.
In the month of February I noticed that the ancient Mazdayasni calendar was recognized as the most perfect calendar that needs NO correction for 110,000 years but they had called it the Iranian Hijiri calendar.
I wrote to them and drew there attention to the fact that Islam did not exist in 2000 BCE. They have now recognized the perfect calendar as the PERSIAN CALENDAR OF 2nd MILLENNIUM BCE.
Hope one day the Zoroastrian community will officially adopt the Mazdayasni Calendar as their own. Till then each one of us can individually use what was our own and is today
considered as the only perfect calenda
r that has ever existed. http://www.zarathushticalendar.com
