Thank you for sending this – it would have been marvelous to be able to come back to Indore and celebrate with you.
I clearly remember the visit I made for the first  program committee meeting 25 years ago, including the night journey I made with our daughter Jane by bus from Pune!   Most importantly,   I have never forgotten meeting you and the first group of women especially the significance to them of their first activity: making a bag for their books with their name embroidered on them as their first steps towards literacy and empowerment.
It is wonderful that you and Jimmy have been able to develop this program. May God keep you well for many more years of service.

Dear Dr. Janak

CONGRATULATIONS ON A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT!  How many lives have been touched and transformed by your efforts?  How many families have found their footing, dignity and self-respect because you have supported them to stand on their own feet and write their own future?  History will look back at these 25 years,  as it has looked back at the humble schools established in Iran at the turn of the century which transformed the lives of thousands of illiterate and humble Persian Baha’is and propelled them to be the leaders of that country and elsewhere, and will fondly record how your institutions also transformed and raised the leaders of that region and that country.
Our congratulations to you.   The notice is short and so unfortunately I do not believe that Mona Foundation will have the pleasure of attending.  We will plan to visit with you soon however and look forward to that.

 I am so touched to be remembered and included in this invitation. It means a lot to me as my visit to the institute did. It has truly left an impression and I often talk about the work going on at the institute with friends and other interested individuals. To the extent that some weeks ago when a French man had come on TV promoting " his" invention of a solar cooker, my son Amin turned to his friend and said: 
"this is non-sense! A man by the name of Jimmy at Barli institute has been teaching ladies how to use his own model for years" Then he continued: "I know, because my mom was there helping for a month. She has met Jimmy!"
 I continue to pray for your success. May Baha'U'llah's confirmation be always with you. I am not able to be there physically but be sure that I feel present.
