    I was fortunate enough to know him and his family very closely-He was my friend Bipin Vasavda’s uncle-VasavdaKaka was a principal of GBTC in Rajpipla in 1958.
    He has also written “Desh Ki Boli” in Hindi for children -We studied this book in high school-It was our text book.
    He was very learned man-and wondreful family man.

      Harnishbhai,
      Can you find out the whereabouts of Shri Indra Vasavada’s family members?
      Pannalal met him around 1937-1938 at his residence in Vile Parle(West), Mumbai along with Umashankar Joshi, which Pannalal has mentioned in his autobiographical novel ‘Jindagi Sanjeevani’.
      I am at the moment researching Pannalal’s early life, his friends, places he lived at etc.
      I would welcome any and every help I get on this, especially on his literary friends in Mumbai……
      Thanks
      Bharat Pannalal Patel

        Resp. Harnishbhai & Pannalalbhai,
        I am overwehlmed with emotions when I read this post. This was brought to my attention by my family who leaves in California. I am the youngest son and have settled in USA. Bipinbhai is Ahmedabad.
        It would be my great pleasure if I can be of any help in your research or otherwise. Please post your reply and we will figure out a way to connect.

      Resp. Manvantbhai,

      Thank you for the well wishes. You brought wonderful memories of the songs pappa cherished and made me mostalgic of the days when Pappa would ask mummy to sing those songs.

    Dear Bharatbhai
    r u part of late Shr Pannalal Patel family???by any chance?? we used to be neighbours of Late Shr Patel…and yes The society was called Pragna Society( still is) under Navarangpura Post 380009, than we lived in Kamala Colony opposite, since we were early settlers in that part, some of our neighbours used to share Bathroom Toilets, which were invariably located at the boundry of the Compounds…this was 1956-59…incidentally I am married to youngest daughter of Shr Indra Vasavada, and all gifts of books that he had in his collection by Shr Pannalal Patel, are today with me, as a school student I had special likungs for Shr Pannal Patels short stories, particularly the ones that dealt wih rural folks and their life issues…..one such books I have ;mentions the meeting that
    u mention at Vile Parle in Mumbai…it is good to see Sahitya Premies getting togather and researching
