It is at times like these that maintaining the blog becomes a most painful duty.
Wg Cdr HND Mulla-Feroze ( Mulla) to all of us passed away following a cardiac arrest yesterday afternoon – 11 Oct 11 a day of double tragedies..
A truly colourful character, he is more famous for his prisoner of war escapades in 1971. We had been neighbours in Jodhpur in the mid 70s and remember them more specifically as ardent dog lovers and foster parents to our own pets.
Colourful as he was, Hufrid took time making friends but once one got to know him, he was a good solid friend. Had tried to convince him to attend the functions at Bangalore but he could not make the time off from his work. He has also made some interesting contributions to the blog, his most popular post being a tribute to the very aircraft that brought us all together here – “The First Time I saw the Marut”.
To Khurshid, Ashiana and his extended family we offer our sincerest condolences. Mulla will most certainly be missed.
