" My grandfather Nathoo Hirji: why and how he came to East Africa, Tanzania, which was ruled by Germans.
In India, Arvudhiya, near Junagadh, he was a cotton farmer, well off but unfortunately due to 1899 drought and due to hardship he left the country for better opportunity in a dhow to Africa towards Zanzibar but due to strong winds landed in Tanga harbour.
He met a few countrymen. They welcomed him.
He started his small business, selling nuts and popcorn. His rest of the family joined in 1905."
