Appeal – Cawnpore Parsee Anjuman, Kanpur


We the Parsis of THE CAWNPORE PARSEE ANJUMAN, KANPUR, UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA hereby wish to make a humble appeal to all the respected Individual members of the community/ Trusts /Organizations belonging to the Zoroastrian community to come forward and donate whole heartedly to “B.N. Javeri Dare-e-Meher” the only Agiary and the oldest one in the North India and also the only functional one in the entire State of Uttar Pradesh.

The purpose of our making this humble Appeal is that we intend to
undergo major repair work along with painting and renovating the
Agiary which has not been done for the past so many years majorly due to lack of funds.

We at Kanpur are a handful of Parsis just 35 in number to be
more precise. The source of income is negligible as compared to the expenses relating to the maintenance of our Agiary. We are getting Dasturji’s from Mumbai on rotation, as no one is willing to come on a permanent basis. Our Dasturji who was looking after the Agiary has grown very old and is not keeping well. We thus have to look after our old Dasturji and also the Dastur’s who come from Mumbai.

We therefore most humbly request our community members to donate generously, to enable us to maintain the only Agiary in Uttar
Pradesh. Donations may please be sent by way of Demand Draft or
Account Payee cheque in favour of “B.N. JAVERI DARE-MEHER TRUST” on the under mentioned address.

With Warm

  • Is it not a waste of money to run a Agyari for 35 persons. Why not merge it with a Mumbai Agyari and sell the land to increase the corpus

    • Totally agree with you. The same applies to many Agiaries in Mumbai where there are multiple agiaries in one location and also in remote parts.

  • Vispi Palkhiwalla

    When is the agiary salgreh as per roj.
