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.
