NY Times on Dwindling Zoroastrians


I just found this article on Zoroastrianism on the New York Times' website. I should have been writing up my final paper for anthro 495, my field-research course, but heck this is practically just as good!

We had originally planned on trying to find Zoroastrianism to study while in India for part of our sociology of religion course, but we found it was unlikely. This is a nice insight into one of the big aspects of Zoroastrian culture - the world is seeing fewer and fewer Zoroastrians. There are other related insights in the article.
