Two Zarathushtis (Parsis) mentioned and shown in India’s Republic Day Parade in New Delhi on January 26, 2018

            I was watching live on a subscription TV channel yesterday evening, the Republic Day Parade in New Delhi, India and saw two Zarathushtis (Parsis) –  Ashoka Chakra awardee Major General Cyrus Pithawalla who was one of the national award winners in the beginning part of the parade, standing up in an open vehicle and saluting the President of India as he went past him.  and also a large picture/bust of the late Field Marshall Sam Maneckshaw on a moving truck and his name announced among the three or four outstanding Chiefs of India’s armed forces, when the vehicle went past the dignitaries.
       See parade at link below,  with Major General Cyrus K. Pithawalla passing by at time 1:07:11 or so.
