The Zoroastrians revere water and all creations. Our traditional philosophy and practices of water conservation regain significance in a world facing acute water shortage. Our collective hopes lie in our ability to understand their continuities in contemporary practice. In the Ava Project, we have curated resources that take us closer to the synergy between reverence to nature, ecology, and human action. We invite you to participate in our endeavor to give social, cultural, and technical attention to Zoroastrian philosophy and practices of sustainability and water conservation.

Jiyo Parsi launches ParsiShaadi App

Jiyo Parsi- the Government of India’s scheme implemented by Parzor, has expanded in 5 years from a medical programme financially assisting couples who require ART, to a programme dealing with the care of elders and children, with financial assistance as well as Counselling, to ensure the Health of the Community.

At an exclusive event on 6 July at the Banaji Atash Behram Hall, Charni Road Mumbai eminent psychiatrist Dr. Pervin Dadachanji, Chief Guest, addressed the audience on the topic : ‘Yes, We Can: Marriage Myths and Reality.’

Dr Dadachanji, renowned Consultant Psychiatrist, has many decades of experience in the field of Counselling young adults and her speech was greatly appreciated. 

Taking Jiyo Parsi’s attempts at Parsi matrimony further, Parzor planned an evening for the launch of a Parsi Shaadi App. This particular app is created by one of India’s leading matrimonial services They had assigned Mr Pamit Anand, VP & Business – Head, People Interactive India, Private Ltd, to launch the App at this event. 

Helping Parsis Meet their Partners, is on the checklist of Jiyo Parsi. A dedicated App can empower singles, allow them to choose independently and when single-mindedly dedicated towards the Parsi Zoroastrian community, will help young adults find a suitable partner. 

This app launch was followed by an interactive panel discussion entitled ‘A Wholesome Work Life Balance.’ 

Eminent Chairman of the Madison World Group, Mr Sam Balsara, who has been closely involved with the Jiyo Parsi initiative and prepared all the Ad Campaigns pro-bono through Madison BMB, showed his excellent understanding of the issues facing his community. Dr Anahita Pandole, Consultant Gynaecologist, spear heading the medical component of the scheme shared her experiences, while Mr Jimmy Mistry, Chairman & Managing Director, Della Group showed how to manage life, family and business successes simultaneously. While Dr Dadachanji added to the issues raised by her in her speech, the young Editor of Grazia India, Ms Mehernaaz Dhondy exemplified the ability for Parsi women to reach the heights of a professional career, alongside raising happy children. 

Dr Shernaz Cama, Director, UNESCO Parzor introduced the Programme and moderated the Panel. 

Ms Kritika Mudgal, Programme Coordinator, Parzor Foundation, delivered the Vote of Thanks. 

The Panel then took questions from the audience and Press. The event concluded with Parsi refreshments enjoyed by all.
