Meher's Paternal Grandparents, Jehangir and Goola

This is a photograph of Jehangir and Goola, Meher's paternal grandparents who lived in the same house as her while she was growing up. She shared that she was very close to her grandmother especially. She shares: "She was the one who taught me my parsee prayers. My grandfather Jehangir-pappa was very tall, 6 feet 2 inches, and my grandma Goola-mamma was only 5 feet tall, so there was quite a height differential!"
