The Never-Married Parsis A Demographic Dilemma

The Never-Married Parsis: A Demographic Dilemma Ketayun H Gould The never-married Parsis pose a substantial demographic problem to the community, both because of their numbers, and because of the fact that marital fertility among the Parsis is also very low.
