family traditions of service were held aloft by his nephew
Seth Edulji, the eldest son of Seth Khurshedji. For thirty
years Seth Edulji in his quit unassuming manner served the
school committee first as member, and then for the last fourteen
years as its Chairman. He in his gentle wisdom tried to calm
the many storms that faced the school management and guided
the destinies of the small Balakshala to its present position
of pride in educational institutions of Pakistan.
his death on Thursday, 8th February 1945 the community was
present in great numbers to pay their last homage to this
noble soul of the Soparivala Family. His death was recorded
in the minutes of the school:
Seth Edulji K. Soparivala
worthy son of a worthy father, the late Seth Kurshedji,
and a scion of the noble Soparivala family, Seth Edulji
gave his best to the school founded by his benevolent
grandfather Seth Shapurji in the holy name of Bai Virbaiji
Seth Edulji served the Managing Committee of the school
for well nigh thirty years, and for the last fourteen
years he also presided over the affairs of the school,
working always assiduously for its good and its progress.
The loss of the school by his death is therefore irreparable.
It has removed from the life of the School as well as
the community a very humble, sympathetic and helpful hand
and so we pray to Ahura Mazda, that his soul may rest
peacefully in Garonmana .."
