  • Dear Mr Bardoliwalla,
    Thank you for posting the short autobiography on your late father, it was quite inspiring as i know personally that during the 70’s racism in the UK was fairly wide spread and to think that your late father had managed to achieve such a status at Rolls Royce UK Ltd is in my opinion quite an achievement despite the odds, no doubt he was a stalwart person.
