I am having problem to call template pankaj.html after sending mail. I have search through google but not found better solution to solve my issue.

path: /app/locale/en_US/template/email/pankaj.html

& i am calling template file in config.xml of module under global tag.

                <inquiry  module="inquiry">

Controller code:

 public function sendemailAction()
            echo "abc";
            $data = $this->getRequest()->getParams();

            //echo "<pre>"; print_r($data); 

            $adminUserModel = Mage::getModel('admin/user');
            $admin = $adminUserModel->getCollection()->load();

            $emailTemplate = Mage::getModel('core/email_template')

            $senderName = $admin->getFirstItem()->getFirstname();
            $senderEmail = $admin->getFirstItem()->getEmail();  
        $sender = array('name' => $senderName,
            'email' => $senderEmail);

        $recepientEmail = array();
        $recepientName =array();

        /*$customer_name = $senderName = $customer->getFirstname().' '.$customer->getLastname();*/
        $recepientEmail = $data['email'];

        $store = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();

        $vars = array('product_name' => $data['productname'],
            'sku' => $data['sku'],
            'qty' => $data['qty'],
            'customprice' => $data['customprice']

        $translate  = Mage::getSingleton('core/translate');

        // Send Transactional Email

        try {

            ->sendTransactional($emailTemplate, $sender, $recepientEmail, $vars, $store);


            Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->addSuccess('email send');

        catch(Exception $ex) {

            Mage::getSingleton('core/session')->addError('Unable to send email. Sample of a custom notification error.');


To check pankaj.html file, i have print $text in template.php file. echo "<pre>"; print_r($text); die;

path: app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Email/template.php
