Roj Din Mah Bahman, 1381 Yz.
Today, 7th July is the 85th Baj, or death anniversary of our Master, late Ustad Saheb Behramshah Nowroji Shroff, as per the English calendar. On this occasion, prayers, Machi, and Jashans are being held in our own Daremeher named after Ustad Saheb as well as several other Agiaries and Atash Behrams in Mumbai and other Parsi locales. The main Jashan and lecture program is being held at the Cama Baug in Mumbai where Vada Dasturji Kaikhushroo N. Meherji Rana will speak. At our Daremeher in Jogeshwari, I will speak on some unknown facts about the life of the Master.
On this solemn day, I would like to draw the attention of readers of Frashogard to the long series detailing some very interesting facts and stories about the eventful life of the Master. This series was then published as a book, called ‘A Wondrous Life’ which is available for sale as well as a free PDF download from the Frashogard SkyDrive.
Due to reasons given at the end of this post, I am unable to write more today but will follow up on our pending articles shortly.
Till then readers of Frashogard will join me in praying one Ashem Vohu and wishing that the Ruvan of Osta Behramshah Osta Navroze will progress further and further and shower its blessings on our troubled community.

[Editor’s Note: I apologize for the long gap between the last post and this. I slipped and fell on my back, herniating two of my lumbar discs. I was hospitalized and then operated for a laminectomy and discetomy. After a few days of recovery I have resumed active duty from today at the Daremeher. The days in hospital were also a unique kind of learning experience which I will write about shortly.]
