Jamshed Nusserwanjee Mehta (7 January 1886 – 1 August 1952) born to a Parsi family, and was the first elected Mayor of Karachi and remembered as the “Maker of Modern Karachi”. His life gave inspiration to many people.
In Karachi, there is Lady Dufferin Hospital. Once, a decision was reached to collect donation for the hospital. Mr Jamshed Mehta was elected into this fund raising committee. It was agreed that marble plaque would be displayed for those donating Rs. 10,000. Many individuals pledged big amounts. Mr. Mehta too pledged an amount ……. but he gave an amount just a little under Rs. 10,000.
Why he would not have given Rs. 10,000, is there a need to say?
