Major Zavareh K. Wadia, “Tiger” to his friends and to his enemies too for that matter passed away in Pune on April 25, 2022. His wife Arnavaz and his daughter Revaz were by his side when he breathed his last. 

His passing away, brings down the curtain on a remarkable breed of gentlemen who took the mundane job of Racing Administration to a different level. His integrity was unquestionable and he had the courage to stand up to anyone as long as he felt he was in the right. 

His tenure and association with the Royal Calcutta Turf Club dates back to 1959, after he retired from the army and joined the institution as a Starter and Clerk Of The Course and he retired almost four decades later as the Racing Manager and CEO. He may have left RCTC many years ago, but his contribution will never be forgotten. Here was a man who led from the front and earned the respect of all who came into contact with him. offers its deepest condolences to the bereaved family
