A Khushali-nu-jashan was held in the evening alongside an enlightening speech by Er. Parvez Karanjia, Panthaki of Sodawaterwalla Agiary and followed by the felicitation of Chief Guest, Sam Balsara – Chairman and MD, Madison World; and other Guests of Honour – BPP Chairman Yazdi Desai, BPP Trustees, Kersi Randeria and Viraf Mehta, Anahita Desai, Mrs. Sam Balsara and daughter, and Mrs. Randeria.
The dignitaries spoke on the importance of maintaining our Parsi/Irani traditions and praised the BBRWA for promoting traditions, like the popular Meiz-e-Murad.
