The Calcutta Parsee Youth League was a splinter group of The Parsi Zoroastrian Association, since the founding fathers felt that the Association did not cater to the youths of the Community. The organisation was formed in 1939 with the intention of making the youth of our community a little bit more close-knit. The objectives of the League are to provide opportunities to youths to exchange views and opinions and share their talents with others via contests, discussions, debates, lectures and excursions, and to be of service to the Parsee community in general and Parsee youths in particular.
The Calcutta Parsee Youth League from its inception has organised several interesting functions for its members and for the community as a whole, including an All-India Youth Fest for Parsee organisations in 1988. Variety entertainment programmes, Plays, Debates, Quizzes, Scrabble and Creative Writing Contests, Elocution Competitions, Talent Contests, Art Contests, Excursions and picnics are within the orbit of this highly creative body.
Some fifty-two years ago, the League had formed a Dramatic Group, with separate rules and regulations and managing committee, for members interested in literature and drama. The Group held regular meetings and presented several plays for its members and their guests. The Group had a fairly long life, but was ultimately dissolved due to dwindling interest. The League had also formed a Music Appreciation Group, but lack of response caused its premature death.
The Calcutta Parsee Youth League gives donations to the needy, to charitable groups and also caters to the desideratum of the less fortunate members of our community.
The League is pledged to serve the youth to the best of its ability being the creativity of the young, by the young and for the young.
