The Federation of Zoroastrian youth Associations, currently presided by Mr.Mabrin Noshir Nanavatti, has in the past year seen a lot of activity. Ever since his takeover, FOZYA has had the 18th All India Youth Meet at Pune in May 2010, the 19th All India Youth Meet at Baroda in Nov 2010 and an Intercity youth Meet at Goa in May 2011. This year, FOZYA in conjunction with ZYNG, the youth body of the BPP, have yet again organized the 20thAll India Youth Meet at Mumbai in October 2011 in its 20th Year.
During the last decade FOZYA has had many interesting meets and those who have attended earlier meets will vouch on it. FOZYA has had meets at Goa, Bordi, Hyderabad, Calcutta, Nagpur, Dahanu, Pune (1989) and many more places.
FOZYA has reached a milestone which would not have been possible without the participation of its delegates and sponsors. FOZYA’s basic agenda is to rekindle the spirit of interaction and assimilation amongst the Zoroastrian Youth.
FOZYA has always placed the interests of the Zoroastrian youth first and foremost and is committed to the interaction and assimilation of all Zoroastrian youth bodies in India. It is also committed to the advancement of the Zoroastrian faith and knowledge amongst the youth, while
maintaining a policy of flavour which respects the diverse traditions and practises of Parsi and Irani Zoroastrians in India.
Over these 20 years, FOZYA has built an outstanding reputation, which is recognised and respected by all Panchayats and Anjumans across India. None of this would have been possible without the trust and confidence of members, donors, supporters and last but not the least delegates and friends . FOZYA’s motto “keep our youth within our community”.
The 20thAll India Youth Meet being held at Mumbai is a special meet as FOZYA completes 20 years and ZYNG members have come out in full Gusto to organize the same. The Venue selected is the Avabai Petit School, where all sessions and meals will take place and the accommodation for delegates has been arranged at the TAJ Land End at Bandra. Delegate fees are now at Rs.5000, inclusive of the stay at the Taj for 3 nights and delicious meals by the Godiwala’s. Apart from this the organizing committee has come up with some exciting icebreaker, religious sessions and games to keep the delegates engrossed through out the day. Every evening will see music and dance to the beat of popular Mumbai DJ’s. The meet not only promises new friends and relations but also fun filled evenings and very interactive sessions and not necessarily about religion alone. The age group will be restricted from 16yrs to 40 years and is not a matrimonial meet. Registration forms are available at
www.zyng.org so keep checking in for more details. The forms received will be on a first come first basis as accommodation is limited.
Formerly, when religion was strong and science weak, men mistook magic for medicine; now, when science is strong and religion weak, men mistake medicine for magic. – Thomas Szasz
