RUSTAM-FARAMNA of AGIYARI at PARSI COLONY, DADAR, B'bay. Rustam, was a poor youth, who had lost his father, when he was very young, and was staying with his ailing mother, in Pandey Chawl, at Karelwadi, Thakurwad, Mumbai. Due to poverty he was not properly educated. He was dark skinned, thin and very tall, and had a very shrill voice. Finding employment was a problem for him, due to all his drawbacks. Ultimately, he approached one Dadi,Thoothi, who had formed a drama company to stage dramas, to employ him as an actor. During that period, cinemas showing silent films had not yet entered Mumbai, hence, staged dramas were the attractions for entertainment. During those days, female roles on stage were performed by male actors. Due to his shrill voice, he was suitable for female roles, but his tall stature was a handicap. Nevertheless, as his luck would have it, this handicap turned out to be an asset for the drama company, because the audience automatically started laughing and clap

LIFE IN A PARSI COLONY Forget 'Life in a Metro'. 'Life in a Parsi Colony' should be made into a movie! In Mumbai, you will unarguably find the largest concentration of Parsis in the community's many 'baugs', or exclusive residential areas where despite the illusionary calm there is, very often, simmering strife, racy rumours are perennially rife, and there is many a shrieking wife… Parsi women of a certain vintage are blessed with a booming voice box that often entertains an entire block with its blasting blah-blah, and it is not unusual for family quibbles and complaints to be broadcast aloud - not so much by design as by default because, 'dikra', what do you do when manic 'mumma' loses volume control? Then, in the 'baugs', you also have any number of aunties in their nightgowns, regally rechristened as 'gowns', and worn throughout the day, often even on errands in and around the baug, expanding their ample lungs and expendin

You know you're Parsi when...

You know you're Parsi when... -Your mom wakes you up extra early on the first day of school/your parsi birthday so that she can do tili and sagaan. You go to school and your friends ask you why the hell you have rice in your hair. -You compulsively drink tea at all hours of the day[in India you wake up your servants at 3 am and tell them to make you tea] -You stress out over the most ridiculous things. -You know the precise definition of ben chod and madder chod and you teach them to your friends. -You're off the marriage market if you get too tan. -However, if you're fair enough, it doesn't matter what you look like or how smart you are, you'll get a decent spouse. -You know at least 3 ways to use oil. Only 2 of which include cooking. -You've had to drink cow piss at least once in your life. -You've bathed in milk and rose petals at least once in your life. -You've had to change your clothes in front of 400 people, while your mom and the rest of the wom

A Short Story On Life

Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn't know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed. Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. Turning to her, he asked. "Daughter, what do you see?" "Potatoes, eggs, and coffee," she hastily replied. "Look
