Hi

I am trying to connect with my school friends from the late 60s and early 70s who were at the Star of the Sea school in Mombasa, Kenya. I was in Primary school from 1963-970 and Secondary school in 1970-1974. My maiden name was Shehnaz Hassanali and I have established a group and met up with several Gujarati and Goan friends including Meera Malde, Anjani Dave, Ida Mendonsa, Elizabeth Martins, Sheena Castelino and Meera Dedhi.

I remember two Parsi girls called Marukh Dara Patel and Armin Kakaria (not sure names spelt correctly) who were in my class but I have no idea what happened to them after I left Mombasa for London in 1975. I and the other school girls would be delighted if I were able to get in touch with them through your network. The girls would have been born in 1957/58.

Many thanks
Shehnaz

CASE # 602 (Posted August 23, 2015)

Hi Ader, this is Noshir K.Avari (73) from Behram Baug Parsi Colony, Jogeshwari, Bombay.Whilst browsing through the net I chanced to see the link of The Missing Parsi and got inquisitive. It’s a wonderful initiative started by you with Yazdi Tantra whom I know personally through our Lakme days. Ader I have always been thinking about a few of my Parsi school friends with whom I have lost contact since we left St.Mary School (Cambridge section),Mazgaon, Bombay, after being to-gather in the same class for around nine years from 1951 to 1960.
I that time used to stay at Dalal Estate, Bombay Central and the class buddies whom I am trying to trace (Mehernosh E.Dah, Noshir S.Mistry, Bomi Bharucha, Marzban J.Shroff) used to stay around Grant Road locality. Rumi Sanjana used to stay at Dadar Parsi Colony. It is a long long time and am sure they must have also become Granpas like me, Ahura Mazda willing.
My email address is : noshirkavari@gmail.com and cell no.+919870600065.
Thanks and regards, Noshir K. Avari

CASE # 600 (Posted August 23, 2015)

Some years ago you helped me locate an old school friend of mine, named Mehroo Dordi through her sister Kety.  They are, of course Parsis and it was comparatively less of a bother to find them, for which I thank you. Now, however, I am coming up with a request to you to locate another friend named Nikunj Patel…a Gurerati but Hindu.  I felt tempted to take a chance  and ask you. I can provide some stray bits of information here ….her husband’s name is Harivadan(Manubhai) Patel…and they used to stay at Anand in 1982…earlier, in Ahmedabad near Ellis Bridge….then, I heard they had gone to USA.  This is when I lost touch. Nikunj and I went to Stewart School in Cuttack, Orissa, in the 1960’s…She taught at the same school, later on. Her sister, Kokila, is a doctor and married, too.  Her brother’s name is Dinesh Patel.  Her dad, C.K. Patel, had  tobacco business in Buxi Bazar, in Cuttack. She has two sons. Well, now I shall wait patiently for luck to favour me through you! Am sorry to have bothered you but I don’t want to leave any stone unturned and you are my only hope, now! Thanking you for reading my request. With regards….Manjusree Sen (nee Das Gupta) Manjusree Sen manjusreesen@yahoo.co.in  If you have any information, please write directly manjusreesen@yahoo.co.in and copy AderGandi@Gmail.com so it can be recorded as a solved case.

CASE # 599 (Posted August 23, 2015)

Dear Ader, We are currently researching information, with the purpose of writing her life story, on Zenobia Mistri (nee Bamboat), a renowned teacher of French language and culture in 20th century Bombay (now Mumbai). She was born in Karachi around 1903, daughter of Goolbai and Jamshed Bamboat and one of five siblings, whose names were Khorshed, Maccoo, Sabar and Gai. She, along with her family, moved to Mumbai where she met and married Mr. Pirosha Mistri, who worked at the House of Tata for 61 years in his capacity as Personal Secretary to Sir Ratan Tata and Secretary of the Ratan Tata Trust. She passed away in Mumbai in 1998. Zenobia Mistri was one of the leading teachers of French language and literature in Mumbai. Over the several decades that she taught there, scores of her students benefited from her deep knowledge of French and devotion to her profession. She was also known for her commitment to several charitable causes. We are keen on contacting her past students, as also family and friends, who would have any information on her formative years in Karachi, her youth in Mumbai, her subsequent teaching and other engagements and any personal recollections of this remarkable lady, whose generosity of spirit and devotion to her work touched many hearts. Documents and photos for insertion in the story will be welcome and duly acknowledged. Shireen Baria Isal
