Abstract

Bapsi Sidhwa, the historian and explorer of the Parsi community, is renowned as an exuberant creative writer. The Crow Eaters (1978) by Sidhwa is a delightful novel, an aide memoire of the Parsi community, its social and religious values, behavioural and cultural traits, traditions and customs. It is a fictitious saga of a Parsi family entwined with authentic traits of the Parsi community, and a recreation of Parsi milieu and mores with its ancient belief and creeds written by a Parsi author. The Crow Eaters is a boisterous portrayal of the characters of a particular community, depicted with their nostalgic reminiscence. Though the characters in the novel are all fictional, the accumulated details make them appear life like. The novel is an authentic picture of the community which Sidhwa belongs to.

The paper is an endeavour to explore the Parsi milieus and mores.
