Parsishaadi.com: Helping Parsis meet their partners
Jiyo Parsi- the Government of India's scheme implemented by Parzor, has expanded in 5 years from a medical programme financially assisting couples who require ART, to a programme dealing with the care of elders and children, with financial assistance as well as Counselling, to ensure the Health of the Community.
A digital platform called ParsiShaadi.com has been launched to increase marriages within the community that faces the threat of fast-declining population. The app will be a platform for Parsis looking for life partners and help them connect with eligible counterparts from across the globe.
At an exclusive event on 6 July at the Banaji Atash Behram Hall, Charni Road Mumbai eminent psychiatrist Dr. Pervin Dadachanji, Chief Guest, addressed the audience on the topic : ‘Yes, We Can: Marriage Myths and Reality.’
Dr Dadachanji, renowned Consultant Psychiatrist, has many decades of experience in the field of Counselling young adults and her speech was greatly appreciated.
Taking Jiyo Parsi’s attempts at Parsi matrimony further, Parzor planned an evening for the launch of a Parsi Shaadi App. This particular app is created by one of India's leading matrimonial services Shaadi.com. They had assigned Mr Pamit Anand, VP & Business - Head, People Interactive India, Private Ltd, to launch the App at this event.
Helping Parsis Meet their Partners, is on the checklist of Jiyo Parsi. A dedicated App can empower singles, allow them to choose independently and when single-mindedly dedicated towards the Parsi Zoroastrian community, will help young adults find a suitable partner.
This app launch was followed by an interactive panel discussion entitled ‘A Wholesome Work Life Balance.’
Eminent Chairman of the Madison World Group, Mr Sam Balsara, who has been closely involved with the Jiyo Parsi initiative and prepared all the Ad Campaigns pro-bono through Madison BMB, showed his excellent understanding of the issues facing his community. Dr Anahita Pandole, Consultant Gynaecologist, spear heading the medical component of the scheme shared her experiences, while Mr Jimmy Mistry, Chairman & Managing Director, Della Group showed how to manage life, family and business successes simultaneously. While Dr Dadachanji added to the issues raised by her in her speech, the young Editor of Grazia India, Ms Mehernaaz Dhondy exemplified the ability for Parsi women to reach the heights of a professional career, alongside raising happy children.
Dr Shernaz Cama, Director, UNESCO Parzor introduced the Programme and moderated the Panel.
Ms Kritika Mudgal, Programme Coordinator, Parzor Foundation, delivered the Vote of Thanks.
The Panel then took questions from the audience and Press. The event concluded with Parsi refreshments enjoyed by all.
