Humbandagi booklet

Some Parsee Humbandagis
By
Jamshed A. Modi

This is a small format, approximately 20-page booklet containing 5 short humbandagis (group prayers), originally in Gujarati, transcripted and translated into English by the author. On the left pages are the humbandagis transcribed in English script; and the right are the translations into English. Three of these humbandagis were composed by the late Parsee scholar-priest of the 20th century, Ervad Dr. Sir Jivanji Jamshedji Modi. The other two are by his co-religionist and contemporary, Firoj Batliwala. Jivanji used to recite them with his family, one every night at bedtime, before he passed on.
Chanting these humbandagis, especially in a group, is a very soul-stirring experience. It promotes bonding and fellowship in the group that chants them, and in the community at large. The author has produced this present booklet in English, hoping that many Parsee families and groups, in India and especially abroad, who are not comfortable in Gujarati may enjoy the experience themselves. It may take a little effort on their part, but the rewards will be well worth the effort. There are 5 audio files to go with the humbandagis, from which one can learn the pronunciations of the Gujarati words, and the correct chants as Jivanji Modi and Firoj Batliwala used to chant them.


 

Jamshed A. Modi

The author of the booklet “Some Parsee Humbandagis” is the son of late Ardeshir and Perinbanu Modi, and grandson of the late Sir Jivanji Modi. He is himself an Ervad, having done his Navar and Martab from the Vadi Dar-e-meher in Navsari. He did his B.Sc. in Physics-Mathematics from Gujarat University in 1955, and then proceeded to the USA to do a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering, a Master’s in Industrial Engineering, both from Purdue University, and finally a PhD in Operations Research from North Carolina State University, with course work at Cornell University. He spent 19 years in the US, and has worked with IBM, Surface Combustion, General Foods and Research Triangle Institute. He returned to India in 1975, and has worked for Tata Consultancy Services, Tata Infotech, and has been a Professor of Operations Management in several reputed business schools in India. He is currently “retired”, and is a Reiki Specialist and Life-coach at Powai Hospital in Bombay.

 

Here are the audio renderings of the Humbandagis …

Let’s begin by watching this 5-minute heart warming clip on

This is a very ancient fire which is believed to be still alive by many in Azerbaijan – Iran .

This documentary endeavors to showcase this rare fortune to everyone who likes to know more about this Holy Fire, The great Pars, The power of mesmerizing Sassanid Kings and about our glorious Persian History in the past 2,500 years.

To date, Mona Sedaghat, the producer, funded $69,700 USD 

for this documentary from her own personal funds.

The production of this documentary movie started in May 2018.

She has been working diligently with a well known History Professor of UCI, Dr. Touraj Daryaee and Mobed Zarrir Bhandara, the head priest of Zoroastrian Association Of California.

While the movie is at its completion stage, Mona has ran short of funds.

She is in urgent need of financial assistance from those who would like to become a part of this fabulous journey.

She also needs help to promote this movie by showcasing it at various Universities, museums, galleries, festivals as well as on prominent TV Channels across the globe.

The funds needed to complete this movie is $14,000 USD.

To date she has invested about $69,700 USD from her own personal resources.
