Website helps trace ‘missing’ Parsis

The website, started by  Ader Gandi and Yazdi Tantra, reunite members of the Parsi community. “The idea struck me when I started getting requests from people asking about fellow Parsis they wanted to get in touch with.

Unlike social networking sites that have billions of profiles and hundreds of people with the same name, finding a Parsi friend or a cousin is much easier on the website, as it’s exclusively for the community,” said Gandi.

The portal that started in October 2005, initially received a lukewarm response. However, the traffic on the site picked up in the past six months and now sees at least 10 posts per day. “Almost 50 per cent of the cases are solved through some connection or the other. You may not remember what the person looks like or their full name, yet the website allows you to post other details that can help people locate them,” Tantra says.

All-India Directory of Parsi institutions

All-India Directory of Parsi institutions compiled by Marzban J. Giara.
280 pages, hard bound Published March 2010. Price Rs.200/-

N. M. Wadia Charities has published an All-India Direectory of Parsi institutions compiled by Marzban Giara. This directory was released by Justice Shahrukh J. Kathawalla at Malcolm Baug, Jogeshwari on Sunday 2nd May 2010. It is a handy reference book of over 500 Parsi institutions.

It contains useful information about all Atash Behrams, agiaries, anjumans, associations, clubs/gymkhanas, colleges. cultural societies, dharamshalas, funds/trusts, foundations, hostels, Parsi newspapers and magazines, convalescent homes/infirmaries, charitable dispensaries/ hospitals, libraries, museums, orphanages, religious societies, schools, Parsi/Zoroastrian websites.

A survey questionnaire was prepared and mailed to various Parsi organisations. Announcements were also made in Jame Jamshed, Bombay Samachar and Parsiana requesting heads of institutions to send their information to N. M. Wadia Charities .

Over a hundred years ago in 1911 Shams-Ul-Ulama Ervad Dr. Sir Jivanji Jamshedji Modi published a book in Gujarati listing the names of Parsi institutions existing at that time. It is hoped that this book will spread awareness among our community members about the resources and facilities available. It will also serve as a guide to philanthropists big and small who desire to contribute for causes dear to them.

This book is available from N. M . Wadia Charities, N. M. Wadia Building, 123, Mahatma Gandhi Road, Fort, Mumbai 400001 Tel. 022- 22674271 e-mail: nmwadiacharities@
