Event description

Description

The ‘walking mango tree' is an ancient sacred tree planted by 8th century Zoroastrian migrants in India, which has ‘walked’ several kilometres into India by repeatedly putting out low branches that have taken root. Prof Alan Williams discusses this legend as a metaphor of the arrival of Zoroastrians, known as the Parsis, one of India’s most assimilated minority communities.
