Dear Friends,
    We enclose an invitation which if read clearly will prove that the Ancient Agiary is in a good condition since the Jasan is scheduled inside the Agiary, if the Agiary was in a poor shape and condition would any one conduct a general Jasan inside the Agiary!!
    The invite is enclosed, the same is self explanatory.
    Thanking you in anticipation,
    Yours truly
    Wellwisher for Heritage Fire Temple.

    Dear Friend,
    Best wishes for the New Year 2010 & Compliments of the season.
    A small request,

    We reside at Thane Maharashtra, India, which houses a 225 year old Fire Temple, this ancient Fire temple will very soon be torn down and a brand new Fire temple will be erected.

    Reason for the same is that the roof is slightly damaged and the wall slightly damaged, here if only partial repairs are done the structure will remain sturdy for about 225 years more.
    TPZA & Thana Agiary Fund has currenly given the contract to an agency which will do the construction work, this is expected to start any time now. We wonder how the local Municipal Office and the Heritage Committee has approved the said plans… Once this work starts we Parsee’s will have to live with a modern Fire Temple and our children and grand children will cuse us daily since we could not preserve our Heritage Structure.

    We hope that you and your esteemed office bearers will do the needful at the very earliest so that the prize relic fire temple will be preserved in its ancient glory, by just repairing the said roof and wall(s), instead of completely breaking and re constructing the same. This is nothing but a politically motivated gimic, with unclear motives…

    Can we expect your timely help, in preserving our culture and heritage??

    The Covasjee Patell Fire Temple is located at: Jambli Naka, THane West Pin 400 601, Maharashtra State, India.

    The trustees of Thana Agiary Fund , if required, can be contacted at (022) 25378103 and the Chairman of Thana Agiary Fund can be contacted at 022-26790948 & (cell number) 09820220212.
    And the contact number of TPZA Thane is 022-25377121 and its President can be contacted at 09820138267.
    Also the number of the Trustee who is prominently coordinating on this matter is 09820181818.

    Please use your contacts and stop this new construction, immediately, this will preserve the Heritage structure.

    Kindly HELP immediately, lots of Parsee brothers and sisters are depended on you and your office bearers.

    Thanking you in anticipation,
    Yours truly
    Wellwisher for Heritage Fire Temple.
