CASE # 583 (POSTED August 18, 2014)

From: Radha Nair <radha_1997@yahoo.com>
Dear Mr. Gandi, I am Radha Nair from Pune, seeking your help once again. Please could you help me get the contact details for Ms. Silloo Commissariat, ex-Air India air hostess. Your help in this regard will be much appreciated.
I look forward to your response. I do not know Ms. Silloo Commissariat at all. Mrs Aban Havewala, an e-mail friend of mine,  had mentioned this lady to me, in one of her letters when I wrote to her about the air hostesses who used to travel with me in the local trains in Bombay. I used to meet them on my return journey from my school in Bandra to my home Churchgate.  I requested her for Ms. Commissariat’s contact details.  But sadly over the years she  had lost touch with this fine lady. …. I have a high regard for the Air- India  air hostesses of  the ’50’s. I would love to write to her and find out about what air travel of her days with Air India was like, as I am trying to compile as much information as I can about  the golden era of air travel. I will be very grateful to you if you could please help me connect with Ms. Silloo Commissariat. I keenly look forward to your reply. Thank you, Sincerely, Radha Nair radha_1997@yahoo.com  If you have any information, please write directly to radha_1997@yahoo.com  and copy AderGandi@Gmail.com so it can be recorded as a solved case.

CASE # 581 (POSTED July 23, 2014, NOW SOLVED)

Dear Ader, Congratulations on the wonderful service you are providing to find long lost Parsi friends. I am a former student of Prof. B. E. Mirza, who taught us  chemistry at Adamjee Science College, Karachi, during 1960’s. A brilliant teacher and a extraordinary academician, Prof. Mirza also co-authored the leading Chemistry college textbook along with Prof. J. B. Sidhwa of DJ College.  His brother Prof. R.E. Mirza later was my professor at NED Engineering College. Unfortunately, these great academics are lost to the history of education in Pakistan. We are in the process of creating a web page to honor the memory of Prof. B. E. Mirza and are soliciting the help of all persons who knew this honorable educator. We would love to get his photographs, education career, information of the book, birth and demise dates, and other information, including names and whereabouts of kin. Please do us a favor and help us find the grand old man and document his services for posterity. Best regards, Jawaid Ahmed sanskritidesai@yahoo.com Reno, NV, USA.  If you have any information, please write directly to sanskritidesai@yahoo.com and copyAderGandi@Gmail.com so it can be recorded as a solved case.

CASE # 581 NOW SOLVED (AUGUST 18TH 2014) Ader, Professor Mirza’s son( rohinton) still lives in Karachi.  If I am not mistaken, he may still be working at BVS Parsi High School as a Bursar . The professor’s nephew ( professor R.E Mirza’s son) Sohrab lives in LA, ( in Orange County). I am sure Sohrab’s phone 3 etc. could be obtained from the Los angeles  california Zoroastrian Association. regards, sarosh  sjcollector@gmail.com
