Comment from Maharukh Chichgar –


  • Thank you so much for this video watch of Seth Dinshaw and Bachi Tamboly. Blessed we are to have these great humble couple who have sacrificed their lives for the community. Both have done true selfless work of helping the community, unconditionally. I belong to Navsari and I have known both Dinshaw seth and Bachi aunty serving the Parsis of Navsari and it’s nearby villages. We have heard a lot about great Parsis of India and my generation saw such humble Parsis..JRD, Ratan Tata, seth Shapoorji Jokhi, Seth Dinshaw and Bachi Tamboly.. the latter we know personally too. We salute them and pray to our Dadare Ahuramazda, Ameshashpands, Yashts, Farishtas and Mogeb sahebs to bless them a long healthy life.

    This are the persons whose works speaks for them and it’s my good fortune to work with them till date . Such humanitarian also pushes you to do something going out of way which would help the society in today pandemic times. Through Dinshawji I have really learned how one should progress leaving aside all sorts of criticism which is a devil’s way to restrict your duties towards mankind. May God give them a healthy life to guide us to fulfill commitments for serving humanity. SHREE PAK DADAR AHURAMAZD NI DUA ANE MADAD HOJOJI.

    Hats off to you both, Bachi and Dinshaw for your fantastic work, dedication and empathy for the Zoroastrian Community . God Bless you both with best of health and happiness.
    Also, a big thank you to the most generous donors for providing funds to help the poor,the aged and the sick of our community.

  • Thank you for this very informative video interview Karismaji, I was privileged to have met Mr. Tamboly, one of the Jokhi brothers, and Mr. Shroff of the Hong Kong, Macao Zoroastrian Trusts who have been the financial backbone of the good work done by Mr. Tamboly, when I attended the World Zoroastrian Congress in Perth, Australia several years ago. Incidentally, Mr. Pervez Jokhi was a fellow student and NCC cadet with me at Siddharth Coillege in Mumbai, India, before he was called to join his family business in Hong Kong. I was amazed to see the many projects Mr. & Mrs. Tamboly has achieved with vision and perseverance.

    I first joined World Zoroastrian Organization after reading about their project to help poor farmers in the villages of Gujarat and became a Life Member of WZO. More recently when Mr. Sam Bhiwandiwala was president of WZO, he also inducted me as an Overseas Director of WZO in California, USA. I had previously co-founded the Society for Rapid Advancement of India (SRAI) in Southern California where we started a project to help poor farmers in a drought prone area of Andhra Pradesh with donation of seeds, fertilizers, and irrigation pumps supported by the farmer’s own labor and promise to help other farmers on acheiving success. Later I used my experience to co-found the Zoroastrian Association of California (Los Angeles) in 1974 and the Zarathoshti Anjuman of Northern California in 1980, where on observing the shortage of Mobeds, after convincing the North American Mobed Council, I became the first Mobedyar in 2000, to serve the community, (as trained by Ervad Adi Unwalla and Ervad Jehan Bagli in Maryland, USA).

    May Ahuramazda bless Mr. & Mrs. Tamboly and the generous donors for their noble work.
