Indian religious sect faces dwindling numbers

Zoroastrian leaders using different ways - from speed dating to free housing - to encourage people to start families.

    A community in India is trying to stop its population from becoming extinct, with its number rapidly falling.

    The Zoroastrian population has been reduced to around 60,000 here, because career-driven professionals are having children late, or not at all.

    Now their leaders are using different ways - from speed dating to free housing - to encourage people to start families.
