Panchgani has always been a centre of learning with many schools and academies around. But due to Baha'i Community, Panchgani has lost it's shine and is turning dull due to the many scandals unfolding.
There is one place which no one can miss in Panchgani i.e. Lucky Stores. The Mihrshahi family have been running the same since many years, but what the owner’s daughter-in-law has done is indeed a matter of great concern.

Mrs. Dilavara is the beautiful wife of Mr. Nemat Mihrshahi, son of Mr. Amin Mihrshahi, the owners of Lucky stores. She is a mother of three children still she eloped with a boy much less than her age.
Mr. Mihrshahi is the Treasurer of the Local 'Spiritual' Baha'i Assembely of Panchgani and also teaches at the New Era High School, a Baha'i School.

Mihrshahis have been notorious for their secret ways of converting the simple minded local people of Panchgani especially the children and youth to Baha'i Faith. Some time back, Mr. Mihrshahi himself was caught by the local people, and was given a tight slap by a local leader who received complains about the conversion activities and warned not to lure the children of Hindus to the Baha'i Faith.
It must be noted that both Mr. Mihrshahi and his wife are teachers in New Era High School and the members of this Faith claims that we are making the children morally strong. Unfortunately, such incidents are occurring wherever the Baha'i community is located such as Panchgani.
