A ‘Sehri Ayojan’ or anniversary feast, catered by Khushroo Kasad, was held at the Sirvai Party Plot at the Dosibai Kotwal Parsi Orphanage, organized by the Atashbehram and the Vadi Dar-e-meher Trust, at 7:00 pm. The feast accommodated around 1200 guests in 5 pangats, under the special roof top constructed for this occasion in the Orphanage’s playground area. It was a warming sight to see generations of Zarthostis together – senior ladies and gentlemen intermingling and interacting with the youth through the evening.
