My father, Shri Shantilal Shah passed his matriculation examination from this school in 1914. I think that he stood first in the school that year and probably was a rank holder in the university.According to what he told me, both Shri Diwan and Shri Thakore took special interest in him and tutored him after school hours. If I am not mistaken, a son of Shri Diwan was his classmate in school.
After school, he went on to Gujerat College, Elphinstone College (Bombay) and Government Law College. He signed his articles from a solicitors firm founded in Bombay by Shri Bhaishankar of Ahmadabad and later became a partner in the same firm.
He also joined in the Freedom Movement and was jailed several times. He was elected a member of Bombay Legislative Council when I believe Shri Diwan was a member of the Bombay Assembly.He later became a minister in the Bombay Government, a mamber of the Constituent Assembly and a member of the Parliament.
He always remembered with gratitude the school and his two teachers who moulded his career. He has written some memories of his school days and later I will send a xerox copy of this which may be included in any souvenier that may be published.
We, his children and grand-children, will be happy to associate with the planned celebration in 2007 and it will be our priviledge to help both financially and otherwise.
