Parsi Punchayet Looks For Trustee

Parsi-Zoroastrians are preparing to elect a new member to the Bombay Parsi Punchayet (BPP), the community’s main representative body, to replace the trustee who resigned last month.

But many members of the community are wondering whether a consensus candidate can be elected to the seat.

By Manoj R Nair |DNA

A search is on for such a candidate, and groups representing different views in the community have already met to identify a trustee who can bridge the seemingly insurmountable gap between the community’s reformist and orthodox groups.

The 2008 elections to the three century-old trust was the first to feature the concept of universal adult franchise. Unlike earlier polls in which only trust donors could vote, all adult community members could vote in the 2008 election, which was keenly contested by the orthodox and reformists, largely represented by WAPIZ (World Alliance of Parsi-Irani Zoroastrians) and ARZ (Association for Revival of Zoroastrianism).

At that time, six of the seven trustees were from the orthodox group. Trustee Noshir Dadrawala, who resigned on March 31, was from the reformist group. He cited ‘incompatible’ differences with other trustees and unhappiness with the organisation’s management style as reasons for leaving.

Trustees in the BPP, one of the largest land owners in the city, have a seven-year-old term. The trust controls large community housing estates, fire temples and the Towers of Silence cemetery at Malabar Hill. After the 2008 election, there was voting in 2009 to elect a replacement for a trustee who died. The 2008 election was so bitterly fought that questions were raised about the money spent by candidates to ensure a win. The community’s press, too, was divided along the orthodox-liberal lines and featured unflattering profiles and caricatures of candidates.

Many community members felt that there is a certain weariness about elections. Vispy Wadia of ARZ said: “Nobody is ready for another election, especially since it is an expensive affair and often involves handing out freebies, including meals and gifts. There is anyway no code of conduct.”

Dinshaw Mehta, chairman of the BPP, said that talks are on to choose a consensus candidate to avoid such election ill will. “We are having discussions with various groups,” said Mehta. “A lot of bad blood flows during the elections. We will be happy if we can avoid it.”

Apart from WAPIZ and ARZ, other groups are also part of the discussion. One meeting on the issue was held earlier during the week and the names of two prospective candidates were discussed. However, one of the names suggested was not favoured by the orthodox members because he is perceived as a reformist. The elections are scheduled for the last week of June or the first week of July. The BPP is planning to announce April 26 as the cut-off date for the registration of voters. An estimated 28,000 people in Mumbai and outside are eligible to vote.

    I thought that those who shouted from rooftops that ‘majority’ were supporting six BPP Trustees in ‘rightful expenditure’ on Lawyers Fees for banning og 2 Priests, would ‘establish’ such a ‘overwhelming’ popularity by contesting elections. Developing cold feet shows the extent of their ‘support’ base.

    Just like in politics, no decent human being would like to stand for election to serve the community with sincerity after what spectacle was seem during the last two elections that were held.. The reason for ‘consensus’ candidate seems to have been prompted more by the realization of ‘anti incumbency factor’ which is giving goosebumps to many rather than cost factor. If cost were the factor, why these same persons want to squander lakhs on senseless litigation? These fellows assume that ALL Parsees are naive to believe their ‘fervent” desire to ‘save money’.
    The opposition, if that term can be used is not having matching means to put up a candidate and if this situation remains, after 5 years will there be any person left to stand for BPP Election except persons out to make a quick buck and then vanish?

    The caustic joke making rounds is that B.P.P. may have to rename itself as D.P.P. i.e. Dadar Parsi Punchayat considering the preponderance of Trustees from D.P.C. and yet another resident’s name from the same Colony doing rounds as a likely candidate.

    Rumour mill has it that Mr. Farokh Kavarana – Director at TATA Sons and son of the community’s hardest social worker Ms. Silloo Kavarana has been proposed as a consensus candidate.

    This is a move in the right direction. Someone like Mr. Kavarana who is respected in the community will bring balance and stature to the BPP.

    Looks like the Trustees are finally following the right path.

    A few facts on DPC.

    Not all buildings in DPC are run by BPP and DPC has the highest number of PArsis living in an area anywhere in the world. This is no joking matter but a fact of life. You can only grin and bear it.

    The term of the Trustees should be reduced from 7 years to 3 or 4 years.

    No trustee should be allowed to serve 2 consecutive terms.

    This will preclude vested interests, and inject fresh blood in to the management of the Trust.

    An election code of conduct should be brought in to force so that financial muscle may not be used. No free food and alcohol to be used to buy votes.

    The present Board of Trustees is not representative of the entire community. It is merely representative of those members of the community who already enjoy subsidised housing and live in the Parsi Colonies. The Haves. What about the Have Nots?

    Applicants for housing should be allowed to have one among themselves on the Board of Trustees so that they are able to protect their interests.

    Outgoings represent Municipal Taxes and nobody is obliging the various Trusts by paying/ defraying higher Municipal Taxes due to later date construction. Yes, one has to grin and pay statutory dues.In Paruck Dharmshalla aged do not have to pay such taxes.

    Very very correct. Somebody will have to move the Court to amend the scheme of election.Besides it is time somebody moves Office of C.C. to disqualify any Trustee who is also a tenant/ licensee of the the Buildings owned by B.P.P.

    It is best that the BPP is taken over by the State Government.

    The State Government should appoint 1 bureaucrat, and a representative of the Charity Commissioner to take over and manage the affairs of the BPP.

    Gradually other “Parsi” / Zoroastrian Trusts which are owners of residential properties too should be taken over and managed by the Government.

    This will serve as a lesson to rapacious trustees.

    The rot that has permeated the BPP, is rife in other “Parsi” / Zoroastrian Trusts too.

    In buildings managed by some other “Parsi” / Zoroastrian Trusts, not 1, not 2 but 3 apartments, i.e., almost ¼ of the building has been given away to a single family.

    Upon the demise of Sathya Sai Baba, the State Government mulled taking over the various trusts formed by Him.

    Barak….I have long observed your comments here on this site. And I am perplexed a bit. This site is about Parsis, The Zoroastrians of India. It predominantly addressed issues related to Parsis, in India and the world over.

    The term Parsi is socio-cultural in its flavor, whatever may be the literal definition. However you still seem to push a certain propoganda that has nothing to do with Parsis per se. I do not know why the editors here at Parsi Khabar allow that.

    From your facebook profile, you do not even live in Mumbai, leave alone India.

    Then why do you continually butt your head into issues that dont concern you. You can always read but choose to remain an observer.

    Do you live in Bombay ? Does what the Parsi Punchayat do, affect you directly ? If not then why unnecessarily keep on taunting and commenting from the sidelines.

    If this concerns you, or your country of habitation, city, town neighborhood, I can understand you chiming in. But it does not.

    Dont unnecessarily keep on adding fuel to the fire, being an outside observer.

    Dear Cyrus,

    There’s an old adage. “Look before you leap”.

    What makes you think I do not live in “Mumbai” (Bombay as you have put it).

    Facebook Profile?

    Dear Cyrus, does it occur to you that many “Parsis” / Zoroastrians speak foreign languages.

    Dear Cyrus,
    I speak, English,
    Mai Hindi bhi jaantaa hoo,
    Maala Marathi maahity aahey,
    Hoo Gujarati bhi bolooch.
    Ya Govoryoo Rusky Yizik,
    J’ai étudié le français à l’école et au collège.

    Many “Parsis” / Zoroastrians are are teachers of German language, and French.
    Many are widely travelled.

    Just because my name appears in English and in Cyrillic, does it imply that I do not reside in Mumbai?

    Frankly your post leaves me perplexed.

    You state, “This site is about Parsis, The Zoroastrians of India.”

    Then you state, “…..addressed issues related to Parsis ……….. the world over.”

    The editors of Parsi Khabar permit my posts because they are democratic, they have Zoroastrian values.

    It seems you are an outside observer. The name “Bombay” was changed to “Mumbai” a long time ago. If you were / are a resident of Mumbai, you would have been aware of this.

    I am not intimidated by you. I shall continue to contribute to this website

    Barak, I strongly diasagree with what you reccomend. Your so called remedy will be worse than the ailment. It would be better to appoint a Trustee Company on lines of Trustee Companies appointed by Mutual Funds, on behalf of the investors.
    Do you know that Er. K.N. Dastur was in charge of Trusts Deptt of a nationalised bank? Do you know that two Public sector banks have subsidiaries to manage Trusts? What is needed is professionalism not red tapism.
    The rot you mention exists in all public charitable trusts. If professional managers are appointed, there will be impartiality and judiciousness. The existing Office Staff of B.P.P. are loyal to their masters because all senior executives are residing in BPP owned Baugs and in fact two of them sold of their earlier accomodation and were provided flats by B.P.P. One of them made a neat pile selling off his ownership flat at Haji Ali and another ‘sold’ his flat in a Vile Parle Colony for a pugree to move northwards.

    If you really lived in Bombay, you will realize that most people who grew up there and live there, still call it Bombay. Yes Mumbai may be the official name, that a political party did as a stunt to garner votes. It didnt change things. As usual you are stooping to petty arguements. I was expecting some Zarathushtra reason for this too. How come you didnt concoct one up?

    Your facebook profile (screen shot above) shows your name in Cyrillic script. And shows you standing in the foreground of some Central Asian looking building. Why does someone from Bombay…OK Mumbai for you….have that?

    The intention of the post was never to intimidate you. Please dont second guess yourself all the time. It was only to point out your constant propoganda on issues and topics that (you as an outsider ) do not concern you.

    You may be working in a secret facility. Yes India does welcome foreigners to collaborate on issues of science, technology, defence etc. Again, that distinction does not add anything to the topic at hand. Another instance of you answering a question that was never asked.

    And my name is no pseudonym. As Phiroze said above, why dont we meet up in Bombay at some time.

    This is my last post on this topic. If you are really serious, leave a comment here with the date and time to meet and I will be there. Am sure Phiroze will too.

    As for KoremandShahparast…ettiquette applies to internet conversations too. Speak when you are spoken to. Dont butt into conversations between two individuals. Its considered rude, both in real life and online.

    If you really lived in Bombay, you will realize that most people who grew up there and live there, still call it Bombay. Yes Mumbai may be the official name, that a political party did as a stunt to garner votes. It didnt change things. As usual you are stooping to petty arguements. I was expecting some Zarathushtra reason for this too. How come you didnt concoct one up?

    Your facebook profile (screen shot above) shows your name in Cyrillic script. And shows you standing in the foreground of some Central Asian looking building. Why does someone from Bombay…OK Mumbai for you….have that?

    The intention of the post was never to intimidate you. Please dont second guess yourself all the time. It was only to point out your constant propoganda on issues and topics that (you as an outsider ) do not concern you.

    Actually Barak, there has to be a provision for marking deliberate NO VOTE. What I mean is “NONE OF THE ABOVE CONTESTING CANDIDATES’ should also be treated as if it is a candidate so that if such abstentations are higher than highest votes garnered by the candidate, such a candidate WILL NOT BE ELECTED.

    There is a matrimonial meet being organised on 11 May at Della Towers, Dadar Parsi Colony.

    As a foreigner, living thousands of miles away from India, how am I aware of it?

    How does a foreigner know that Parsi General Hospital was designed by Shapoorji Chandhabhoy?
    Foreigners working at sensitive installations in India need special clearance from the Intelligence Bureau and Ministry of External Affairs.
    I do not.
    Dear Phiroze,
    As for the photograph with the building in the background, it is not a Central Asian building. It is one of the most watched and famous places in the world.
    Are you aware that India generates more than US$ 10 billion annually from export of services? Indian professionals are sent on deputation the world over. Don’t people post photographs of themselves taken abroad?
    Suppose a photograph of me taken in Panchgani or Mahableshwar were on my profile, would it imply that I am a resident of those hill stations?

    Britain is debating scrapping the “First Past the Post” system for the proportional representation system.

    With introduction of elections for the post of Trustees, the stinging defeat handed down to the Punchayet in the Mirza-Madon case, the honourable section of the Zoroastrian community have got a toe in the door.

    It is a small, but significant beginning.

    Gradually they can chip away at the BPP, and bring changes one small step at a time.

    Statistics reveal that annually 33% to 44% of the community inter-marries.

    It implies that the present crop of Trustees is losing a sizeable chunk of eligible voters annually.

    Dear Behroze,
    Today’s edition of the WAPIZ advertisement has proclaimed the wife of Yezdi Desai as the candidate.
    They have even drawn parallels between the husband-wife Desai duo, and Sir Cowasjee Jehangir and his wife, Lady Jehangir being trustees together.
    The comparison ends there though. Sir Cowasjee Jehangir (Readymoney) donated vast sums not only to the Zoroastrian community, but also to the city of Mumbai, and the then British Government.
    In contrast, I understand that even though the Desai couple are filthy rich, they are partaking of charitable accommodation from the BPP.
    This election will decide whether the community will sink or swim.
    As they say, you get the government you deserve.

    This one is for Mr. Phiroze Cyrus Mahrukh Panthaky-Khambatta :

    Received not one but 2 copies of the Free Press Journal at my house in Central Asia.

    (For some strange reason they left 2 copies of the Free Press Journal at our residence).

    MOST OF THE TIME I FIND ONE BLOGGER BY THE NAME PHIROZE REPEAT THE FOLLOWING BECAUSE THE OPPOSITE PERSONS DOES NOT AGREE WITH HIS VIEWS:-That those disagreeing with him should be expelled/ excommunicated,
    -That they should form their own “Club” ;
    = Dissenters are all Reformists !
    – They should contest elections to prove their majority. (though he shudders at contesting to establish his own support base.)
    Firstly I do not know, who has given authority to this gentleman to pass verdicts.
    SECONDLY , I FIND THAT PHIROZE SEEMS TO HAVE A LOT OF LEGAL KNOWLEDGE INCLUDING THAT OF THE INDIAN CONSTITUTION. SO WHY DOES PHIROZE NOT REPRESENT B.P.P. INSTEAD OF MANU SINGHVI AND ROHTAGI. IT WILL SAVE A LOT OF MONEY FOR B.P.P. AND OVERNIGHT MAKE A HERO OUT OF OTHERWISE UNKNOWN PHIROZE. THIS WILL ALSO REMOVE THE CRITICISM AGAINST B.P.P. FOR SQUANDERING MONEY ON SINGHVI & ROHTAGI.

  • Farsak Ashli

    When some self

    styled
    pure Parsees (Charity Colony style) are short of discussing rationally and
    match the caliber of the opponents , they start barking filth like using the
    word to connote the opposite person as illegitimately born. That itself shows
    their own upbringing and what their own parents taught them.

    Another regular who relishes reading his own name appear on
    the portal, has the habit of ‘inviting’ those,( including a lady ) with whom he cannot match is
    intelligence, for a drink. Implicit in
    this ‘invitation’ is the hint of ‘handiagiri’, -of threat of matching brawns if not brains. One can
    understand the frustration of this twosome. But my question is why they put on
    pretence of being interested in ‘issue
    based discussion’ if their belief is in
    hooliganism. In fact their faith in
    handiagiri is itself unbecoming of a peace loving Parsi Zoroastrian and they
    should be deported to U.P. or Bihar. Just by residing in a Colony
    for Parsees, one does not become a Parsee Zoroastrian. If that were so,
    all ‘Kaam wali Bais’ would claim to be
    Parsees. It is the language that one uses, the behavior and conduct that separates
    a true Parsi Zoroastrian from
    uncouth elements living in hutments and slums.
    The language one uses is a sure
    giveaway exposing their background. These twosome should in fact be grateful
    against whom they have a grudge, for engaging them in a brainstorming
    sessions. It is a different matter if the twosome cannot be good and sporting matches.

    With MALICE TOWARDS NONE. JUST PLAIN SPEAK.
