Marzban Giara passes away

Marzban Giara, a treasure trove of knowledge and one of the most notable Parsi historians was a mini library in himself. He has many firsts to his name, including the first illustrated Global Directory of Zoroastrian Fire Temples, All India Directory of Parsi Institutions, The Contribution of the Parsi Community during World War I, to name a few. He was a warm person and always shared his knowledge with those who came to him, especially the younger generation. His contributions to the Parsi community are immeasurable, especially in terms of documenting history and writing books, which he has left behind for the benefit of generations to come. His sudden demise today is a loss to the entire Parsi community and he will be deeply missed. Garothman Behest Hojoji

    Pasban Marzban Giara was working for IBM until the firm with Coca Cola had to move out of India. He was the scout master for the 11th CBDA troop after Scouter Maneck Sattha migrated to Canada.He used to supplement his income by selling multi color Giara’s Ravo (Semolina) which was delicious. His books on Parsi history and information were very informative. Garothman Behest Hojoji. May he rest in peace.
