Shamil Thakrar pays tribute to the man behind a Mumbai institution, famed for a lifetime of selfless hospitality
I write this column with some sadness. Just a few weeks ago, a certain Mr Boman Kohinoor passed away at the grand old age of 97. He was the owner of Mumbai’s iconic Britannia & Co and a man of legendary kindness.
