You gave a ziafat for Rs.1.25 lacs ???? Well, well I know a person who gave ziafat for ONLY Rs.786/- a couple of decades ago....... BUT do you know the catch ?? That person is the one who used to take care of the police department and other civic officials in bohri mohalla during the dai's visits hence it was a once in a blue moon gesture to gain the abde's absolute loyalty.
If you have any relatives/friends in Pune then please check the number of ziafats/mafsusiyats/hadiyats which numbered around 129 and the rate for the 53rd's ziafat were between Rs.27 lacs to Rs.52 lacs depending on the abdes pockets. Hence you can very well assume as to what must be the rate for the dai's ziafats. It is no secret that Sheikh titles are sold for Rs.52 lakhs. It is also no secret that a mere kissing of the feet ritual costed Rs.5,200/- per head and on an average there were not less then 2000 abdes in a single day (The dai stayed for more then 20 days), kissing of the hand costed Rs.52,000/- in Pune. A relative of mine had paid Rs.7 lacs for the 'Chamar' ceremony during Mohurrum vayez around 20 years back. FYI These are actual figures quoted proudly by the abdes who chose to get slaughtered !!!
