The citys oldest Parsi gentleman the 149-year-old cast iron Khada Parsi, or the statue of Shet Cursetjee Manockjee is set to regain some lost glory.

Despite earlier Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) plans to shift the iconic statue to Five Gardens, Wadala, and then to the Mumbai Fire Brigade headquarters, the Khada Parsi will now be restored in situ, the Byculla flyover junction. The restoration will also include the fountain at the base of the Corinthian column and replacement of the four-feet tall lamps that were stolen in the 1970s.
