Sad passing away of Navzar Phiroze Dotivala Of Jamshedpur

With deep grief we break the sad news of the passing away of Parzor’s Friend & Supporter Navzar Phiroze Dotivala Of Jamshedpur. Always smiling and ready to help, his unassuming personality hid a deep determination to always be at hand to help humanity; and particularly his community across India. With his late wife Silloo, who too passed away far too early, he stood for the true values of the Jamshedpur Parsi community; helpfulness, joy in life and protection of the environment as well as a belief in the values of the Zoroastrian faith. His Good Thoughts, Words , Deeds were legendary. He was always there when Parzor or any Parsis needed him- at the Udvada Utsav keeping the Delhi Farohar children in great humour and yet maintaining discipline, at Exhibitions in Delhi and Calcutta, at our Parzor Crafts Exhibitions in Bombay. Holding high positions and a beloved leader of the Jamshedpur Anjuman Navzar enabled Parzor to bring the invaluable portraits from the Jamshedpur Agiary for the Everlasting Flame Exhibition . Survived by his mother Villie , beloved Daughter Kainaz & her family Daraius, Zara & Arish Shroff and sons Xerxes, Yim and daughter in law Jayeeta, he succumbed to complications from Covid. With health issues he yet put humanity first to help ensure food for patients during their covid quarantine, only to suffer a second Covid infection which he fought bravely. Our gratitude to all the Doctors at the Tata Hospital, Jamshedpur, his friends and well wishers across the world for their prayers and assistance. He has joined his beloved Silloo in Garothman Behest. As he always said ‘ Ushta Te’., a motto Navzar personified in his life.


  • A huge loss to our community. RIP.

  • THe Jamshedpur Parsi Association will find it near to impossible to replace Navzar. He was the glue that held it together.

  • May His Soul Rest in Eternal PEACE.

  • We will surely miss him May his soul rest in peace and give his family strength to overcome the period of difficulties

  • A dutiful brother with cherishing smile that cab never be forgotton,A radiance on the face and accepting sharp eyes which reflected his feelings towards humanity.May the lights of those departed illuminate his path in the darkness of Hades till he United with the loved ones and the Great Architect of the Universe accepts him with open Arms.
