Stop sale of the Parsi Lying-in Hospital sign now

The Bombay Parsi Panchayat has decided to put the Tehmulji Nursing Home or the Parsi Lying-in Hospital situated in the prime South Mumbai fort area, up for sale. The reason given is that there are just not enough people utilizing it and it is defunct. While this is not surprising, what is very surprising is that the trustees are thinking of selling it off instead of putting it to good use for the Zoroastrian community.

Why can't this Nursing home be converted to an Old People's Home? If a maternity hospital is not the need of the hour for our community, surely an old people's home is.

There would be any number of elderly community members who would welcome the chance to live with dignity in a decent home where their needs would be taken care of. There could be separate wings for different economic sections of our community. There could also be a section where married couples could be allowed to stay together instead of the usual segregation into a ladies wing and a gents wing.

The property being in a prime area, the lower floor could be rented out to retail outlets, the monthly income generated from the rent would be enough to sustain and run the entire Home. Maybe the house of Tatas or Godrej would show interest in taking up the space for one of their many retail ventures.

We request your participation in this petition to help raise a collective voice that we propose to table before the trustees of the Bombay Parsi Panchayat and request them to pay heed to this matter and take urgent action to prevent the sale from taking place before its too late.

We Parsis have been blessed with several charitable institutions & properties in the heart of Mumbai because of the far sightedness & the philanthropies of our ancestors. Let us not waste that by disposing off this property. This kind of property, once gone, can never be brought back. It's reasonable to say that the property is priceless in terms of the high value of its property rates. However, the money obtained from this sale would last only so long and would be over before you know it.

Wont it be benevolent to have this converted into a self sustaining Old Age Home and provide a service to our aging community.
