Triibute to our dear friend Shahpur Captain
Our dear Shahpur was introduced to us by our aunt Ruby Contractor in 1983 when they visited India with others to create awareness about the establishment of WZO.
Since then our friendship with Shahpur blossomed into a very close and fulfilling relationship. It was Shahpur’s vision that WZO undertake community welfare work in India and it was solely due to his enthusiasm, support and guidance that we took the first tentative steps to establish the WZO Trusts in India.
It was our good fortune that in the initial years we had Shahpur to fall back on whenever we needed guidance and support. He regularly visited India once every year till 2007 to visit with us, villages in Gujarat, meet beneficiaries and view the transformation taking place in their lives.
The humble Parsi farmers remember Shahpur even at present and consider him to be one of their benefactors. Their prayers will resonate with those of many others for the smooth transition of his soul from the physical to spiritual realms.
We extend to Shahpur’s wife Inderjit and daughter Armaity our deepest and sincere condolences.
Rest In Peace Dear Friend.

So sad to hear about Shahpur. I remember in 1983 he was chairing the committee to decide whether to grant me a scholarship to study for the LLM master of laws degree at King’s College London which had offered me a place. I was delighted and very proud to have received the ZTFE scholarship which not only helped me in my career but also helped me to secure a place at Queen’s College Belfast where I’m a part-time doctorate researcher (PhD student) in data privacy law. May he rest in Peace.
