Ushta, dear Dr. Khodayar Attaie,
Many thanks to You for Your informing others about us,
and I must add some correction to your report -- 4 items:
1. We Uzbekistan Zarathushtrians very much want to register our
Zarathushtrian Anjuman, this registration must wait until future.
2. Here many people -- millions -- are interested in Avesta
and Mazdayasna Zarathushtri Daena -- Zarathushtri Din -- in
Uzbekistan, but our Zarathushtrian pupils are about 400 at this time. The
7000 others are in addition to this number, I didn't speak about those 7000.
3. Some of our pupils can read, write and speak the Avestan
Language, but not all of them. Now nearly 20 our pupils can speak.
4. Miss Anna Mavlichenko is nearly 11 years old and she very loves
the Avestan Language. After beginning to learn the Avestan
Language, she started to excel in school and gained the first place position
in her mathematics class.
Also, I would like to mention the name of our young man Andrey
Kubatin who became one of our best student in Avestan Language and
then he won the first place in the Republic Linguistic Olympiad.
The members of our Zarathushtrian Anjuman are native speakers of different
Indo-European langaugee, mostly Russian. Some of us know English
language as well.
Also we invite all you and your colleges and friends to visit us. There are
many nice ancient Zarathushtrian temples in Tashkent and you can see
them and enjoy the hospitality of Uzbekistan.
We wish radiant happiness to You.
Khshnaothra Ahurahe Mazdao!
