Notes - Pirmohamed Family in Lindi
 

Pirmohamed Janmohamed Dosani was born in Mundra, Kutch, India in 1860. He migrated to Zanzibar where in 1893 his son Abdulla (nicknamed Bachupira), my grandfather, was born.The family migrated to Lindi in 1901 and lived in a house in Ndoro area of Lindi (later on occupied by Virani family).

My grandfather worked for a few months in Lindi for Esmail Khimji and later in 1917 in Zanzibar (soon after his marriage) for Jaffer Hameer, his father-in-law. He started a shop in Ndoro on 11th May 1920. In 1933, he moved to town in the Jamat-owned Golfa building where our family lived and had a shop. With gradual migration from Lindi to Dar and other places, my uncle Haider was the last family member to leave LIndi. He finally vacated the shop in June 2012 after moving to Dar due to illness. We ran that shop was for 79 years and the total stay in Lindi for five generations was 112 years.
