Dear Mr. Gandi, My name is Bomi Billimoria but I am not the person you are looking for. Although we share a name, we were not related but his wife Roda was a distant relation on my motherโ€™s side. My contact with them was limited to a very few meetings at family functions. On inquiring with some family members, I came to learn that bothย Bomi and Rodaย have passed away in Mumbai within the last few years. I was not able to ascertain further details such as precisely when or how. Iโ€™m afraid I have no more information about them but I believe, considering the source, that this limited information must be correct. Regards, Bomi S. Billimoria <bomibillimoria@yahoo.com>.

She has forwarded three (3) attachments from PARSI STATUES by Marzban J. Giara. The first is a picture of ๐’๐ข๐ซ ๐๐ก๐ข๐ซ๐จ๐ณ๐ž ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž๐ญ๐ฃ๐ž๐ž ๐’๐ž๐ญ๐ก๐ง๐š who was the grandson of Dhunjibhai Behramji Mehta of Calcutta. The second is Page 140 from the book where the biography of Sir Phiroze begins. And the third attachment tells us that Sir Phiroze died in 1938 while the book was being printed. Besides, Mrs Prochy Mehta also says that with your help she hopes to connect with ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐๐ž๐ฌ๐œ๐ž๐ง๐๐š๐ง๐ญ๐ฌ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ƒ๐ก๐ฎ๐ง๐ฃ๐ข๐›๐ก๐š๐ข ๐๐ž๐ก๐ซ๐š๐ฆ๐ฃ๐ข ๐Œ๐ž๐ก๐ญ๐š who had built an Agiary in Kolkata.

Phiroze Cursetji Sethna was the eldest son of his daughter Dinbai married to Cursetji Sethna. So I presume there were other brothers and sisters and their families who would qualify as descendants. Would appreciate it if you widened your search among family and friends. Thank you. With best wishes, dara: 2DaraS Acidwalla <2darasacidwalla@gmail.com>.
