CASE # 621 (Posted November, 15, 2016)

Dear Ader, My friend Zubin Madon suggested I contact you. I am trying to find out more about my father, Bahman Bhikhaji Italia. Not sure when he was born, but I was born 25th May 1969, to a mixed marriage. My mother was Scottish woman Jessie Moira Evans Italia (born Mackay). My father was probably born before Partition, perhaps in the 40s or 30s. They married on June 27th, 1968. Our home address was 18 Mary Road, Bath Island, Karachi in what was then “West Pakistan.” I believe he was an accountant by profession. My father moved to the UK; I believe in 1977, when Zia came to power. He died in 1980. Anything more you can find out would be helpful to me. I’ve always believed my surname was Italian (which puzzled me). I only recently discovered the Parsi connection, but it fits with many things I remember (esp a tale of the Tower of Silence, which impressed me as a child). Yours, Iona If you have any information, please write directly to and copy so it can be recorded as a solved case. Thank you. Be sure to mention the case #.
