Hon’able Marazban Jal Patrawala

My first cousin The Late Hon’able Mr. Marazban Jal Patrawala Minister of Law Judiciary, tourism , Protocol , & Chairman of Privileges committee  for 16 years.
 
My Beloved cousin Marazban Died at the young age of 52 of a massive heart attack on the very day of his swearing in  Maharashtra Cabinet .

I am writing a Biography of Marazban and would appreciate all the feed back from People who knew him and whose life he changed for the better.
 
Marazban was one of the most Honorable kind and Learned + witty men I knew extremely erudite & learned , No one on earth can ever accuse him of Nepotism or Favoritism or any enriching him self or any of his Relatives
 
Marazban Died leaving behind a very very nominal amount of money and valuables , ..show me any other modern day Politician as learned as Marazban was who left behind so very little , it is true that a man who serves the Poor Quietly dies very poor.
 
As a clan and as a race let us Honor Marazban  and take Pride in his various achievements starting from Young Childhood when he was Presented to the Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru ..to the Time he took the salute as lieutenant in Sea cadet Corps leading march past in the Colaba Causeway in 1968  ..when as a child I cheered and applauded my Hero My cousin Marazban , he went on a full scholarship to Join the Bar at Lincolns Inn IN London ..
 
As a clan and as a race we have to support each other and show pride in each others achievements 
 
Thank you and best regards

  • I rewind my memory in the past and bring back those golden days, when I was in the Sea Cadet Corps. During my short tenure between 1964 and 1967. I had joined the Sea Cadet Corps in the year 1964. At that time, late Marazban was holding the rank of Leading Sea man. I give my best tribute to my late friend Marazban : Well disciplinarian, genius, kind, his command on English language was impeccable. He was upright and commended respect from all the quarters. I would like to mention the meaning of sea as follows:
    SEA = S = Self respect, E = Enterprise and A = Action.
