KZBM launched into the publication world to keep in sync with the 20th century. The following were done with the view to assist our community in Pakistan which we have achieved successfully.

Manna of the Angels
In June 1991 KZBM printed the first ever 'coffee table' Parsi cookery book, Manna of the Angels. Two editions were printed of a 1000 copies each and the proceeds were deposited in a new fund named the Alan R Bilimoria Fund, interest to be used for any requirement. Six Libraries of Congress in the United States hold a copy of our cookery book.

What's On
On the occasion of KZBM's 80th anniversary, 12th November 1991, the first issue of the What's On was published, becoming a monthly newsletter. It is sent to all members of KZBM and to many Zarathushti Associations all over the world; as well as to editiors of Parsiana, FEZANA Journal and Hamazor magazines.

Both these publications became KZBMs flag ship, making us known throughout the Zarathushti world. A copy of the Manna was presented to Her Majesty the Queen, Queen Elizabeth II, on her recent trip to Karachi in October 1997.

Zarathushti Census
April 1995, a nationwide Zarathushti Census was undertaken and achieved, being the first complete one. Thereafter a booklet was published collating the data from the census forms in September 1995. The total number of Zarathushtis registered in Pakistan were 2,831 persons. One can safely deduct at least a 100 people, as many of these are studying/working abroad and have been included.

A&T Directory
March 1996, the first A & T directory was published of the entire community residing in Pakistan.
March 1997, a second edition of the A & T directory was printed, as the previous one was by now out of date due to change of addresses in Karachi and individuals emigrating.
March 1998, an addendum to the exisiting 1997 edition of the A & T directory was printed and sent to all our members, gratis.
March 1999, updated A & T Directory with a difference including ex- Karachiites who have email addresses and now living abroad. Available against donations of Rs 200.

Blood Directory
September 1997, a blood directory was published, listing the donors both locality wise and blood group wise. A separate section listing all the names who gave their blood groups but not donors, for easy use.

Services Directory
May 1998, A Services Directory was made available, listing small and large entrepreneurs of our community.

Evening News
September 1998, The Evening News, a project undertaken by 21 selected children, coming from all walks of life with a few having learning disabilities. Imagination was called for to envisage the future 14 years ahead, when KZBM would be celebrating it's centenary. This was distributed to all our members.

Antilope Deer Robber Escapes from Jail

Last night, antilope deer escaped from jail. Earlier this year he was arrested by Universe police for robbing Malvina (the ship). The ship called Malvina was to deliver a cargo of gold to England. When the antilope deer robber heard this he set sail with his gang of diver robbers to find the gold. It took them 100,000 years to find the gold. The antilope deer was thrilled but soon the Universe police cought him.

Legend says that all the antilopes came and rescued him from jail and not a bar was broken. The jailer says, “I don’t know, all I was doing was giving the prisoner food when I heard a herd of antilopes. They seem to have put me to sleep. All this happened at 90 o’clock. When I woke up the antilope man had gone. People told me that antilopes had helped him.”

Police are investigating the escape.

Young Reporters

At that time they were selected to do a special workshop
I am filled with nostalgia today as I read about KZBM’s centenary celebration. I was associated with KZBM when it was not so old and venerable, nor so widely spread across the globe. The America chapter will be its fourth branch after successful ones in Canada, Australia and Britain.

KZBM has come a long way in the twenty-first century. I remember the time when the four-storey high Book Society just started in the annexe of the Manijeh Mehta Hall, the present Manijeh Mehta Museum and Art Gallery. At that time only women were allowed to become members of KZBM, and I remember the riots that took place when men demanded their rights to join. If my memory serves me correctly, Cyrus Cowasjee, the husband of the then President Toxy Cowasjee, had even chained himself to the door in protest.

The management and staff of Evening News wish KZBM more glory in the future. Their achievement is truly to be commended in the face of the mayhem being created by robots (also called robbets) and antilope deer robbers. The Evening News urges its readers to practise restraint in dealing with these criminal elements and to co-operate fully with the Universal Police in their investigation.

One final note — Evening News will be sponsoring a Space Titanic quiz on Universal Peace Day. The first prize is two round-the-galaxy tickets courtesy Travel Corp. Keep a look out for more information.

Note: The Editor has done her utmost to ensure that spelling and language remain as the reporters had written it. However, some items have been edited for brevity or clarity.
Robbet Kills 800

Last night, robbet killed eight hundred people. A robbet destroyed all the ships and factories made by poor people. The police have warned the robbet’s master who is controlling the robbet. The outside robbet told the him the police are coming so he ran out of the back door. The police took their fingerprints and caught one of his friends who was also a robbet.

The Director of this film is Hilla Daruvala. The story is about a space ship that crashes with planet Mars. The hero survives the crash but murders his girlfriend. The title song of the film My Love Will Go On and On has already busted all the music charts in the Universe. Don’t miss it.
  Music ReviewRobocats

Robocats Are No.1
Now the Robocats have really hit the chart lists. Right now they are touring Mars and do you know what? It is very hard to belive they will be in London on 13 and will be in Australia on 16. So get your tickets booked or you’ll be left behind. There are rumours that Clark might be buying his dog a $1,00,000 worth collar. Who knows if it is true or not. If you want more music news keep on buying the Evening News.
