Pioneering Parsis of Calcutta – Book Launch
It started as legal research but swiftly became a voyage of discovery. I was entranced by the stories that unfolded as I glimpsed history in the making. Various scenes played out in front of me as the kaleidoscope of society in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries revealed itself. I was spellbound by the great deeds and wonderful accomplishments of our community members who strode larger than life on Calcutta’s stage. Their foresight, intelligence and broad-minded views were truly remarkable. It pained me that some of our history was never told and much of it forgotten. At the prompting of dear friends I decided to put my findings into a book. Come take a walk with me into the glorious history of Calcutta Parsis.
