Chronicle of A Corpse Bearer is the story of the practically unheard of and downtrodden community of corpse bearers of the Parsi community. These corpse bearers live in the densely populated city of Bombay, but are unknown to most people, except those of the Parsi community, who require their services to carry their dead to the Towers of Silence. This small group is looked down upon by society, making it very difficult for them to find life-partners who will accept them for who they are. This eventually gives rise to a lot of frustration among the members of this section of society. However, the story takes an unlikely turn when Phiroze Elchidana, who is the son of a highly respected Parsi priest, falls in love with Sepideh, who is the daughter of a very matured corpse bearer. How does society react to this uncommon love story? What fate do the young lovers meet? This story has been based on a real-life account and is a thought-provoking novel on the barriers that exist in society. It gives its readers a clear picture of the heart-wrenching situation of people such as the Parsi corpse bearers, who are not only miserably poor, but are also ostracized from society. Chronicle of A Corpse Bearer has been published by Aleph Book Company, in the year 2012 and is available in hardcover.
