Nazarali Rahim Makani (1883 – 1951), Professional Craftsman, Designed Spinning Wheel for Mahatma Gandhi

“Nazarali Bapa was in the iron trade. He was a tool-maker and had the expertise that was required in this profession. Due to this, his oldest son Gulam Husein Nazarali Makani (my grandfather) received a tender after the British left India to install hand water pumps in all the neighbouring cities of Bombay…Widowed at a very early age with five children, three sons and two daughters, Nazarali Bapa never re-married. He remained single and committed himself to his five children.” — Khurshid Makani
