Author Details
In 1944 Feroza Seervai took her honours degree in the first division, in Philosophy, and worked towards a thesis for the M.A., on The Right to Revolt. In 1945 she married H. M. Seervai, and later abandoned the thesis. Her life has been spent in voluntary social work. She has been an activist in educational, social and environmental issues. She shared her husband's principled stand in all matters, his love for literature and for a quiet social life. She co-founded the Purshotamdas  Thakurdas Hostel for Working Women at Colaba, and the Bombay International School at Chowpatty, guiding its destinies in its early years as Chairman or Member of the Board. She has been vitally connected with the activities of many NGOs in Mumbai.
Feroza Seervai edited and published The Seervai Legacy, and collected and issued a book of poems written when she was 76 to 80 years old, for private circulation. Her booklet Winning Without Corruption, to be brought out by Public Concern for Governance Trust, relates her experiences over 60 years, with officialdom. She is the happy mother of three and the grandmother of six.
