My dear friend Yazdi,
Recall our pre-med days in ADAMJEE SCIENCE COLLEGE, Karachi (1961-63). Of course, I will never forget my first job and villa at the BMH PARSI GENERAL HOSPITAL, KARACHI. It has been the best part of my life.
I last saw the PARSI COLONY across from M.A. Jinnah Road in 1980. I think of it as a huge compound of 250 Victorian style palaces, easily the best residence in the subcontinent.
I wish the Persian Zoroastrian Sassanid dynasty had not clashed with the powerful Arabian state of Hazrat Umar, the state of Madinah in the 640s. Then the 3000 year old Sassanid civilization of Persia, a super power of the times, could have survived much longer.
