Ervad Zal Darius Mody was recently ordained as a Navar on December 20, 2018, Roj Khordad, Mah Amardad, in memory of his grand uncle Ervad Sorab Hormusji Mody.  Zal was taught his Navar prayers by his grandfather Ervad Keki H. Mody and guided and mentored for his Navar initiation by Ervad Keki Ravji at the Cama Baug Agiary in Mumbai. 


Zal (11) attends Chapman Elementary School in Cheshire, Connecticut. Zal is the son of proud parents Tinaz and Darius Mody, brother of Jehan Mody and beloved grandson of Rupy and Lovji Hakim of New York and Diane and Ervad Keki Mody of Connecticut. Zal thoroughly enjoyed his experiences both culturally and spiritually on his first trip to India.

Zal and his parents and grandparents are members of the Zoroastrian Association of Greater New York (ZAGNY)

Wishing young Ervad Zal hearty congratulations and best wishes for abundant good health, joy, success, happiness and many long years in the service of our glorious Zoroastrian religion.
