CPC - GHAMBAR 1

CPC GHAMBAR

Beji Bulsara is no more but every year we have a very special occasion to honour and remember him. Of course for those of us whom were close to him we do not need just one day – we remember him every time there is a close hockey match, we miss him when we need a calm analytical mind during a cricket tournament, we think of him whenever we enjoy a delicious meal and of course we sorely miss him when we need a friend, confidant and a helping hand.

We thought we had many more years to enjoy his company but life has no certainties and the last we saw of our dear Beji was driving home from his beloved Parsee club, after a 5 a side football match on 2nd May 2001.

His closest friends, inconsolable at that time, decided that they wanted to do something to celebrate the man he was and keep his spirit alive in us, in a unique way. And that’s when the idea of a Ghambar was born. Because they knew that a close second to sports in Beji’s life was his passion for food. Where does one go for the best biryani, the tastiest hilsa, where to buy the biggest prawns … he always had the answers.

The annual ghambar is therefore always held on his death anniversary and without any pomp and ceremony we gather together to eat some tasty treats. This year the donors out did themselves and invited Mr. Firoz Karbhari and his wife all the way from Nagpur and they did not disappoint. The caterers were put up at the Dharamsala while the cooks were given accommodation courtesy of the agiari. The menu of Kari mutton and chicken palao along with Parsee stew and soft chapattis were relished by all 330 attendees, the highest number till date. This year, the Ghambar was held at 52 Chowringhee and was shifted from the original date of 30th April to 1st May owing to the bandh and the rains.

We thank the generosity of those who made this possible and remember with love our dear friend Beji.
