Parsi’s foresight, wells became rainwater harvesting tanks

The segment is in Gujarati, but explains the historic nature of the wells in Parsi Mohollas

100 years ago the entire Navsari district had a population of about 5,000 Parsis, every third person in the total population was a Parsi. However, with the passage of time, the number of people belonging to the Parsi community is decreasing. The work done by the Parsi community in Navsari is amazing. Parsis have contributed a lot in making Navsari the center of education of South Gujarat.
