RESPECTED SIR/MADAME, THIS REFERS TO THE FALICITATION AT ALBLESS BAUG ON 30TH JAN FOR SSC (MY SON) AND OTHER STUDENTS.REGRET TO INFORM YOU DUE TO OUT STATION WE REFERED YOUR LETTER ONLY ON 14TH JAN REQUEST YOU TO KINDLY LET ME KNOW WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE FOR COLLECTING INVITATION PASS FOR MY SON.AWAITING FOR YOUR POSITIVE RESPONSE, REALLY VERY SORRY FOR ALL THE INCONVENIENCE CAUSED TO YOU AND YOUR TEAM
It was indeed a pleasure to be at the ZOSTA Annual awards function. Thank you for encouraging the parsi youth. I truly wish I could have resided in mumbai to enjoy the various activities that you all so painstakingly conduct. Thank you very much once again.
My daughter Kainaz Faroodi got 95.5% in ICSE in March 2016. Her name was selected in the prize winners list of 2017 Zosta Awards. On the day of function we had booked our tickets to Shirdi by train and hence she was not able to collect the prize that time. I was informed that the same will be carried forward and will be definitely given on the next Zosta Awards function i.e. in 2018. This year we missed again as were not at all aware as to the date of the Zosta Function which already happened. I just read about it in the Jame Jamshed of 11th Feb about it.
I would wish to know whether my daughter who achieved good score of 95.5% will get the prize now or what is the procedure .
Thank you very much.
