Session

The Parsi Story: Portrait of a Community

Pheroza J. Godrej, Jehangir R. Patel, Bachi Karkaria and Coomi Kapoor in conversation

In an engaging and intimate session of memory, history and identity, a panel of eminent Parsis explore their community’s success, contribution and foundations within the country. Exploring what it means to be Parsi in today’s India, they examine their deep roots, including the Tatas, the Mistrys, the Godrejs, the Wadias and beyond, to search the essence of their indomitable spirit and their role in all spheres of our nation’s growth.
