The author at her best is trying to tell India had nothing of its own and all the good things including Irani samosa and pyar and mohabbat in Indian lives came from outside.
there seem to be no end to this pseudo pragmatism. Farsians came to India as refugees because moghuls tortured their lives within 15 years of their conquest.
But they were given the best treatment which every phoren person get in this soil. Best location for their homes and shops and almost tax free living even today for all those big homes they own in walkeshwar and chowpatti along the marine drive.
At best the author could have questioned when we treated them so well why are we getting treated like thieves when you go there?

Completely agree with you, Parsis were forced to leave their home country like Pandits were hoarded away from KAshmir. Iran has a great history and very ancient civilisation like India. Post Inquilab entire country is taken over by izlami radicals and they literally destroyed their great country. Nobody to blame but only it people.
Take it easy ppl ,why ponder on our past.Come to reality India definitly isnt wat it was then.We got lots and lots to correct in ourself.The author is jus mentioning her experience,lets enjoy it rather than finding for faults.
It is one of the good articles, but then you made the biggest bluder by saying that Aryans gifted words like Pyar, Mohabbat etc to India. Do you know, according to recent scientific revelations, there was no such Aryan invasion on India (read abt Saraswati and Pre-Harappan civilizations). By this you mean to say that Persians were Aryans? The real meaning of Arya in Sanskrit is noble, and Max Muller and McCauley's children twisted 'Arya' and devised 'Aryan invasion theory'. Unfortunately, educated Indians like you are repeating the same like parrots without even knowing the truth about it! Please do your homework before writing such sentences....
The author seems not to be aware of the fact that the british-introduced theory of the purported Aryan invasion has long been debunked. In fact, modern archeological research proves that Aryans emigrated *out* of India, contrary to the myth created by the british that they invaded and settled down in India, and thus civilized the otherwise barbaric native Indians.
