The Parsis arrived in India as a result of the exodus in the wake of the Arab Conquest of their home land in the 8th century and settled down in the western coastal regions of Maharashtra and Gujarat. Though a miniscule minority they have distinguished themselves in very sepher of the public life of this country which they have adopted as their new home and have contributed enormously to its progress and development. These great contributions which are out of all proportion to the size of the community prompt one to recall the Churchilian expression: never did so many owe so much to so few. This book which is a veritable portrait gallery provides an excellent overview of these glorious achievements by depicting the lives and careers of 14 illustrious Parsis whose vision and work have immeasurably enriched the spirit and content of our national life.
