A Time Of Immense Pride and Joy For The Community!
The past week has brought in much reason for our community to truly feel an immense sense of pride and joy at the achievements and ongoing events… and your favourite weekly is privileged to share it all with you!
Leading the list of great tidings is the recognition bestowed on the illustrious Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, who was honoured as the greatest of all philanthropists of the century! Rightfully reckoned as the ‘Father of Indian Industry’, the founder of the Tata Group topped the prestigious ‘2021 EdelGive Hurun Philanthropists of the Century’ worldwide rankings, with his overall donations amounting to USD $102.4 Billion (current evaluation). Not just that, Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata was the only Indian who made it to the Top Ten in this prominent list! (Pg. 6)
Reinforcing the legacy and glory of our distinguished forefathers, who brought immeasurable pride and worldwide reverence to our small community, Parsi Times is thrilled to share that our Parsi cricket pioneers of 1886 were honoured at Lord’s, proudly featuring in the prominent ‘Lord’s Father Time Wall – Top 100 Greatest Milestones’, launched by the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) – the world’s most active cricket club as also the owner of Lord’s Ground and undisputed guardian of the laws of cricket! PT is grateful to all the cricketing greats and personalities, including Nari Contractor, Farokh Engineer, Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, Lord Karan Bilimoria, Ron Kalifa, Diana Edulji and Boman Irani, for celebrating this historic moment with us!

And there’s more! We will soon get to watch the biopic honoring Homi Jehangir Bhabha, considered the Father of the Indian Nuclear Program, in the form of a web series, portrayed by none other than our very own Bollywood star and acclaimed actor – Jim Sarbh! (Pg. 7) And we join in heartily congratulating Pune’s Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Medical College, on its Diamond Jubilee – 75 years of medical excellence and service. (Pg. 8)
As our chests fill with pride and joy, may we commit ourselves to sustain and reinforce this unparalleled legacy of greatness!
Have a good weekend!
