My husband is suffering from Aortic Dissection for which heis been admitted to P DHinduja National Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Mumbai on 11th He is a retired person for the past 13 years, having two daughters, one is single and the other is married, we have no source of income except living on income from banks pension and interest. With our monthly retired pension of around Rs 24,000/- we would find it extremely difficult to venture for this treatment. We have a nominalmediclaim policy of Rs 150,000/- in this difficult time.Till date we have incurred Rs 500,000/- on hospitalization, medicine, consultation and investigation for which we partly received the amount from nearest family members and well wishers which we have to return back to them. Currently he has been put on NIV (Non invasive Ventilator) BI PEP. We have currently hired the NIV machine on a rent of Rs.20,000/- pm and same will be utilized permanently for future use for which we will have to purchase on an outright basis which will cost Rs 150,000/-.Due to high level of infection and high level of carbon dioxide sustained in his body, doctors are trying to bring the level to minimum level after which they will rule out a Surgery of Aortic Dissection, Aorta Valve replacement and Bypass surgery which will cost around Rs 1,500,000/- and more. After successful surgery my husband will have to undergo monthly check up and a line of treatment which will cost us nothing less than Rs 10,000/- to Rs 15,000/- per month.We sincerely hope to receive positive response from well wishers like yourself.

Operation Eyesight at the XVII North American Zoroastrian Congress!


“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” __Helen Keller
Our Congress is Nearly Sold Out! Only 10 Seats Left! Register Now!
Dear Friend,

Join us in giving the gift of sight!

We invite you to engage everyone from the littlest members of our community in religious education classes to our elders in Bridge Clubs across the continent in collecting gently used prescription eyeglasses and sending them to the Congress with your emissaries.

The Congress will work with other local like-minded organizations to ship the eyeglasses collected to eye camps in Mexico or Panama or other places identified by Operation Eyesight where there is a need for them.

Operation Eyesight works collaboratively with organizations worldwide, to bring reliable eye care to all people, especially those threatened by blindness and low vision. The organization has permanent clinics set up in many locations including Mexico, Panama, India and the Philippines.

Let’s come together: Our united actions can make a difference in our world today!

Best wishes,
The XVII North American Congress Committee

Appeal for Kathi Funds


As we are aware that to enable the Fire of Aatash Padshah to continue burning, offering “KATHIS” is a must and this is to be managed by the Panthaky of the Kapppawalla Agiary and not by the trustees.

I would like to bring to your kind attention that at Kapppawalla Agiary presently we are facing acute shortage of “KATHIS”. Moreover, the ever increasing prices of fuel, transport and manual labour for handling, it has become absolutely imperative to have a “RESERVED FUND” for the unique purpose.
I humbly appeal to donate generously for this noble cause. Keeping the “Fire” alive is the “Hour of the Need”.
In order to avoid any controversy and bickering, I impress upon our Zoroastrians to issue a “cross-cheque” infavour of “H Sidhwa & Son”, who are the sole distributor and supplier of “KATHI” to our “FIRE TEMPLE” and post or personally give the cheque to Kapppawalla Agiary,, Tardeo.
Thank You.

Kalyan Parsi Anjuman Agiary

Dear community members

We are thankful to the Trust of the Kalyan Parsi Anjuman for running the Agiary in Kalyan.

Kalyan not being a tourist spot, does not have many Zoroastrian visitors there, thus short supply of Sandal wood and largely rely upon the Kathi. There, the requirement of Kathi is around 2 tons in 3 months.

Thankfully, the Dasturji there, Dorab Dalal efficiently maintains the Agiary premises too.

Thus, we if we donate generously, the flames will remain there in the future.

For more details contact Dasturji Dorab Dalal in Kalyan. His mobile number is 8108526002.

Thanking all in anticipation.
