CASE # 581 (POSTED July 23, 2014)

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.

Hello, Ader. 

Thank you for any assistance in tracking down the family of Rashid and Piroja Irani, who lived on Banaji Lane in the Fort Area of Bombay in the 1930s/40s. Their children included Behram and Shavak and one sister (Ketayun?) whose navjotes were performed by Ervad Minocher B.

Behram and Shavak went to either Fort Proprietary high school or Bazaar Gate high school in the Fort area. The boys attended school with Mobed Panthaki’s eldest son, Jehangir, with whom they they were good friends. Those children  and would now be in their 70s and 80s.
