Abstract:

"The parsees number a little over 115,000 and live in Bombay and in a few towns and villages, mostly north of Bombay. Although they are not, strictly speaking, a caste, since they do not belong to Hinduism, they are a well-defined community. They were among the first to open themselves up to European influence -- under the Brtish rule -- and this is one of the reasons for their prosperity. On the other hand, they remain a closed community, not only in that they never marry outside of it, but also in that, clinding to the beliefs and cusrins if their ancestors as to so may distinctive marks, they do not seek to spread them." -- introduction.
