Roj Ardibehesht Mah Adar, April 15, marks the 198th Shubh Salgreh of the Pak Narielvala Agiary at Dadar  –  an oasis of peace, prayer and powerful positive vibrations near the bustling Dadar station.
For close to two centuries, this Sacred Holy Fire has blessed the community with many benedictions and boons.
Today, let us bow before this Holy Fire from our homes all over the world, as we isolate ourselves against a terrible scourge that has beset mankind, and pray that this Holy Fire blesses humanity with immediate relief and enduring good health.
In the evening today, at 6 p.m. India time, the attending Mobed Saheb will offer a Maachi. Since the Agiary is closed to the public as per government orders, all humdeens are requested to join in the Humbandagi from their homes by praying 5 Yatha and 3 Ashem at 6 p.m.

Mademoiselle Delphie Mennant, a French lady scholar, visited Sanjan in 1901. She has written a scholarly book, Les Parsis, about the history, religion and culture of our Parsi  community.
In an article in a Parisian magazine she wrote: “We are astonished to find that the Parsis have, up to now, neglected
to raise a commemorative monument to mark the place of the landing of their ancestors and the place where the Sacred Fire burnt for the first time in India.”
Her suggestion was taken up by Shams-Ul-Ulema Dr. Sir Jivanji Jamshedji Modi, then secretary of Bombay Parsi Punchayet.
A committee was appointed in 1910 and they decided to build the Memorial Column at Sanjan.
On Roz 8 Mah 6 1289 Y.Z. i.e. February 15, 1920, the Sanjan Stambh was inaugurated.
Three special trains were run to take a huge contingent of Parsis from Mumbai. A special train was also run from Surat, which was taken advantage of by residents of Surat, Navsari, Bilimora, Valsad, Udvada in large numbers.
Vada Dasturji Khurshedji Minocheherji performed the Jashan. Shams-Ul-Ulama Dasturji Darabji Peshotanji Sanjana led the Humbandagi.
