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.
