I was born in Pune, raised in Mumbai, India and emigrated to Canada with my parents when I was nine years old. Silla, my maternal grandmother lived in Pune and I was not really close to her. After completing my education, a sudden urge took me back to India where I re-connected with her. Unfortunately, this was only to be short-lived for about six months. It was late in the day as I observed she had limited energy and minor age-related health issues. She was known to be kindhearted, generous, respected other religions and led a simple life. Having lost her husband in her early 50’s, she had raised her children well. She was a devout Zoroastrian, she prayed daily and practiced the three-fold Zoroastrian tenets of Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds. Shirin (Silla) Behziz, a great-grandmother to two, grandmother to five, and mother to four, born and lived a Zoroastrian, passed on at the age of 96, in her home, of natural causes.
