Our Ancestor's Chotanmal
and his son Panjanmal migrated from Multan, a province in Punjab
which is now in Pakistan.
Then they shifted to Tandojam in Sindh (Pakistan). Here they
had a cloth shop. Later they shifted to Kahmari a port about
4 kilometers from Karachi. Here too they had a departmental
store where they used to sell bags, cloth, watches and many
more daily consumer goods. This business was further handled
by the next generation Pursoomal and then his son Shamdas. Surname
Chotrani was started by Metharam and it continues to be same
till today. Metharam had three sons namely Hemandas, Udharam
and Jianmal. All were married to ___________, Shamibai, and
Jassibai respectively. Hemandas unfortunately had no children.
When Udharam got his son Navalrai married to Shamibai, Jianmal
was attracted to Shamibai's sister and Jianmal was also married
to Jassibai. Jianmal died of heart attack in Tandojam. Hemandas
expired in Kahmari. Before Udharam came to Hyderabad Sindh (Pakistan)
all the brothers got separated in business and property.
Then Udharam and his son Navalrai came to Jodhpur in INDIA.
Navalrai got married to Jankibai. Jianmal had two sons Hundraj
and Parmanand who then came to Virar first and then to Borivali
in Mumbai. Later Hundraj got married to Uttambai sister of Shamibai.
Parmanand got married to Jankidevi.
