The Story of Sir H N Mody and HKU

Sir Hormusjee N Mody, a distinguished Parsi businessman and a renowned philanthropist and benefactor, made a major donation towards the founding of HKU. Without his generosity, the University's existence may not have been realised.

I agree with Jimmy that HKU should consider offering scholarship to Parsi students to honor Parsi's contributions to HKU.

Nice video....now I know more about my fellow parsis of hk. HKU should give scholorship to few bright parsi students to keep the connection to HKU alive and encourage parsis from around the world to attend HKU. It would be heartning for Sir HN Mody to see that if he were alive today.

I think his donation was around $285,000 and not $180,000 as mentioned in the video.
