Abstract:

Parsis are very weird, strong and intellectual community. They are very particular and possessive toward their community and religion. They have witnessed multiple phases of ups and downs. But they remain intact to their conventions. They still wear sudra, perform jasna, Navjote, wear dugli. The Parsis are rigid in the matter of inter caste marriages, which is why their population is dwindling. They don’t accept any other community’s girl or do not give their daughter to other communities. The funeral rites of Parsis are quite different from others. They believe in charity, in love, in “Humata, good thoughts. Hukata, good words. Huvarasta, good deeds” (Burjor 21). Parsis observe the policy of non-violence, co-operation. The present paper will analyze the afore mentioned points in the novels of Rohinton Mistry. In one of his interviews Mistry has said that the Parsis number at this planet is dwindling at alarming rate. So he is writing novels to preserve the Parsis life, convention etc.  Mistry is one of the contemporary Indian diaspora writers. He migrated to Canada in 1976 and from there he writes about Indians their culture and tradition.

Key Words: Convention, Wedding, Funeral Rites, Harmony, Non-Violence.
