Looking for Adi Behram Marker

My name is Lily Seeney and I live in the UK.
This is long shot in the dark but I am trying to find my first cousin ( who the family lost since my mum passed away) who used to and probably still does in Pune.

He is my mama’s son. His name is Adi Behram Marker. I know he has a son and daughter. Son’s name is Behram as well. Not sure of the daughters name. I have tried asking some folk who live there but have drawn a blank. I remember going to my Uncles house as a young girl with my mum and vaguely think it was in Salisbury park.

Is there any way of finding out some way if he is still alive or has passed on. I am now 69 myself and my sister is 83.
If you can point me any direction as to whom I could contact would be grateful.

Kindest regards

Looking for heirs of Edulji Mogra

My paternal grandmother, Gulbai Nuusserwanji Mody ( nee Mogra ) had a brother, Edulji Mogra, who went to Shanghai in the late 1800s or early 1900s. They were from the village Tavdi 3 miles from Navsari. Edulji married a Chinese lady and had two sons, one of whose name was Minoo ( am not too sure of the name). I remember my father saying he met Minoo in Hongkong in the 1960s. Would love to connect with them or their descendents if any. Thank you, and best wishes….

Mahabanoo Mody-Kotwal


I am Meenakshi, born in Mumbai but living in Delhi since 1960.
I am looking for NEVILLE BHARUCHA  and his son GEV BHARUCHA. They were residing in Bandra, Hill View Garden. They were a few of the kindest people I ever met. I lost a touch long time back. In this critical time my heart is waking up every morning worried for them.

NEVILLE DOSABHAI BHARUCHA was the only son and GEV NEVILLE BHARUCHA is also the only son. NEVILLE uncle got married to a Gujarati lady – second marriage. GEV was his son from his first Parsi Wife. NEVILLE uncle was a flight Purser and the second wife was an Air Hostess.

If you find NEVILLE uncle, please tell him that I missed them all in my life. Sorry, I could not contact because I was struggling in my life. I want them to know that I cared for all of the family. I just pray to GOD ALMIGHTY for their safety. They were real angels on earth.


Looking for information on parsi women singing traditions

Dedicated to safeguarding ancient music traditions especially sacred and folk female voice traditions, and as I am a Persian deep voice singing lover, I am looking for Hindustani zoroastrian songs or parsi families / communities still holding strong women singing traditions.
If you know about anything in this regard, please share.
