  1. Hi,

    Great effort with valuable resources in different areas ! Keep it up !!

    Wish you all the best and many successes !

  2. Dear Sirs,
    I am based near London in the UK and was wondering whether you could possibly help me with a query.
    I was watching a cookery programme recently. In it Gary Rhodes, one of our TV chefs, was exploring regional Indian cuisine. The programme also featured Parsi food. Being naturally greedy, I was fascinated by it. Mrs. Bhikoo Manekshaw explained some of the finer points of Parsi food and culture and mentioned a collection of recipes by her and perhaps others, possibly published by yourselves. As far as I remember the title of the collection was “1000 Millennium Recipes”. Would you know of it and if so, are there any copies available for sale?
    Thank you in advance for your help.

  3. Excellent work, I was wondering when the DPA would join the dotcom age. Loads of information on the community and DPA activities. Now if someone could also put up the entire DPA member directory online that would be a big help to some of us whose hearts are in Delhi but are now based elsewhere. :) Maybe you could ask people to register their details on the site to avoid too much re-work by the site administrators?

  4. Thank you Mehernosh, for your appreciation of our website.

    We have considered putting up the names and contact details of our members, but decided against it keeping in mind the privacy of our members and the risk of the contact details getting onto annoying spam email lists and unwanted sales calls.

    However, if at some point of time we do put up our directory in a secure manner, I will let you know first. And if meanwhile you need the updated contact details of anyone here, write to us and we’ll connect you to them.

    Regards

  5. Am overseas at the moment and would like to know if the Delhi Parsi Ajuman has got an email address to contact. That time it was run by Mrs Bhaglee.

  7. I am a proud parsis who by marriage moved to delhi since last 2 years. But never had an opportunity to meet up with the rest. was lucky to be introduced to Ms veera mavawala who who has opened by world to all my other parsi fellows.

  9. Congratulations on developing a excellent website to educate the youngsters on our religion. Great Work. can we incorporate soft copies of FED NEWSLETTER, Jame-jamshed etc. on the website.

    >> DelhiParsis Webmaster: Thank you for your compliments Mr. Bodhanwala. Your suggestion of incorporating other Parsi newsletters like FED Newsletter is great, but there are ownership/copyright issues which come in the way of us doing so. However, I will explore the options.

    Meanwhile, you can read Jam-e-Jamshed online here http://www.jamejamshedonline.com/

  10. The sight is excellent only one request

    Please update the Tel No for Delhi Parsee Dharamshal on the web page the correct No is 23238615.

    Thanks.
    Jehangir

    >>Webmaster, DelhiParsis.com: Thank you Jehangir! I have corrected the number.

  11. i want to wish to all parsi brothers/sisters ” HAPPY PATETI ”

    the parsi new year.

  12. while searching for parsi food recipe in google ,i got to see this site.i must admit this site is very informative for people like me who does not belong to your comunity.
    i have one question to ask- please tell me any joint where they serve parsi food in delhi .
    excellent job and best of luck for future.

    >>DelhiParsis Webmaster’s Note: Thank you Swati for your compliments and encouraging words about our website.

    As for Parsi food, there is no “only Parsi cuisine” restaurant in Delhi. But some restaurants at the Taj, and Basil n Thyme in Santushti do have a couple of Parsi dishes on their Menu.

    However, there are some Caterers in the NCR who do make Parsi food. If you like, write to me separately at delhiparsis at gmail dot com and I will give you their contact details.

  13. I’m researching a food book for a well-known publisher. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best place or places in the world to enjoy Parsi food? I’m keen to increase awareness of this influential yet little-known cuisine. Ideally they should be open to the public, including non-Parsis. I’m thinking of restaurants or cafés but any suggestions would be welcome.

  15. hello my dear parsis

    az you know it is dangerous in iran but not in india .
    if your community accept them ,you will see the change .
    besides ,i have a question .
    can you speak persian or not ?
    at last you can contact with me at the hakhamaneshian site .

  16. Dear all,

    Please find some time from your busy schedules and visit this link above.

    I have never before taken this active interest in religious affairs, leaving such matters to our better peers, such as yourselves.

    However the recent additions, especially the exterior additions, to the Iranshah Temple are in such poor style and workmanship, that it is appalling and distressful we could do this at our Vatican……….if we do not act in this matter ……….I leave this to your better judgement, but the effect will be lasting, and future generations who visit Udvada will say “have our Parsis seen places like the Vatican ………how could they allow this to happen at Udvada?

    There can be no controversy here, this is so degrading to our holiest site, it should move the most disinterested to action.

    Please intervene.

    Sincerely,
    Geve

  23. Hello,

  24. Hello,

    Nearing Parsi New Year Next Month.. I sincerely, wish all my Parsi fellows out in Delhi a very Happy New Year
    This site is fantastic.. It gives us chance of belonging that somewhere out there in Delhi – there too are Parsi and we can connect to them

  25. Hi,
    I must Congratulate you as you did a great job by throwing open this website.
    Persons like me who wish to know about your community will be surely benefitted.
    Some years back, when I was a student I went to Darre Meher to gather knowledge about your culture & Religion and was furiously welcomed by an old man at the gate whom I think would have died right now (and if it is this, may his soul rest in peace).
    I then somehow managed to entered inside sir Dinshaw Building and met a cook who happens to be a Hindu but I was so thirsty to know about this religion that I started asking him many things to which his reply was as that the Zorastrian Religion is a mere illusion & the place is only a meeting place of all Paisewallahs & BANIYAS.
    I was knowing this much that I am not supposed to enter or even walk near the Agiary for being a Non-Parsi, but suddenly a lady came in an ambassador car with a young girl and without thinking that I may be a young researcher and even not bothering me to ask anything, she shouted upon me as if I was a begger…..!!!
    Infact I was in my Early Law Graduation years and was wishing to work for the contributions of this great community but that old lady did all that which was against her religion and teachings of Holy Zarthustra.
    Now I have grown as a Lawyer in Delhi High Court but has the same imporessions of this community what that lady left upon me in 2002.
    Regards-
    Sahab Shabbir Baboosahab.

  26. Dear Fellow Zorastrians,

    Good Wishes for the New Year Ahead.
    May Lord Ahura Mazda shower His Best Blessings on you & your family,

  29. NOVEL —SOCIETY by Mehernosh Kapadia

    In my part of India where i live there are hardly any Parsees, so when i saw a novel written by a Parsee i picked it up—Society by Mehernosh Kapadia
    He has really captured the Society as it is today , it depresses me as a youngster that this is what society is today. But i must say his writting is excellent. as good as Dan Brown’s -Da Vinci Code

  30. All I do in life is read novels eat and dream.
    I must have ready over 500 novels by now and all subjects.
    My favourites so far have been Sydney Sheldon, Harrold Robbins and Aurther Hailey.
    Today i have added one more name to them –Mehernosh Kapadia. His novel SOCIETY is complete in all aspects. It sends a message and also entertains which very few authors are able to do.

    Great work–the world will hear a lot about him in the years to come

  36. Hi,

    I had Sali-Chicken & Fish Fry at Parsi Anjuman. It was really excellent.

  37. Congratulations to our Parsi brother Mehernosh Kapadia on launch of his novel SOME WOMEN WILL NEVER CHANGE in paperback after great success as an ebook.
    The novel depicts Salmaan –Aishwarya love story in parts.
    The novel has all the masala for a Bollywood/ Hollywood movie.

    • Hi Shirin,

      You do know this is spam, right? Am surprised at the number of random “compliments” in the form of comments we get here]. Unreal.

      Maybe a good book (am not endorsing it), but the spam is creating annoyance.

    • It seems also story about Rajesh Khanna and Tina Munim

  38. I traveled to delhi today (I am traveling in India but I came to Delhi only forthis reason)with the hope of know more about the parsis culture and they refuse to talk with me about it just becasueI am not parsis.
    If you want your culture more know in the world to avoid diapear it has no sense to treat the persons interested in it in this way.

    • Dear Simbad,

      It is unfortunate you feel this way. Am not sure whom you met and what happened? Was it a planned trip with a meeting fixed? Maybe next time you could write to us first and we could point you to the right people to meet and discuss with.

      Sincerely

    • hey simbad dont get disheartened ………. i am one zorastrian culture fan …..and i an living in delhi itself ……the parsees are of very good and soft nature…..i also met with a parsi at delhi parsi dharamshala from the refrence of an unknown person who was waiting for his parsi friend at the dharmashala…..and he introduced me to his parsi friend and trust me simbad he attend me very gently……….so its my advice to you meet the right people with right person…bcz we are human beings and its natural that if any unkown person will start enquiring about me without any reason then i ll get suspicious…………..think wisely and i respect your feeling towards the culture……. once u ll suceed in that.

  39. Dear Friends,

    I propose to make 5/6 short films and for which we are looking for young Parsi boys and girls for acting, writing, directing, cinematography, sound and editing.

    All those who are interested may please contact me on 9870327564 or email me at mkfilms7@gmail.com.

    We propose to send them to international film festivals.

    Donations to help this cause are most welcome in the form of cash, camera lending, sound and editing.

    best regard

    • Hi Ali,

      As I replied to your earlier email, please email me with specifics as to what you’re looking for, and why… because as such, we are not aware of any particular iranian psychologist in the NCR. Perhaps you can contact Max Hospitals or Medanta Medicity or any such large healthcare providers.

      You can write to me on admin@delhiparsis.com
