"My great-grandfather had come to Bombay on a bullock cart in the nineteenth century. We hail from peasant Kathiawari stock. The name 'Padamsee' is derived from 'Padam', which means lotus and 'See', or 'Sinh', which means tiger. A lethal combination. But my great-great-grandfather carried the simple surname Viru. (I am not sure when the family name switched to Padamsee)" Alyque Padamsee
