Here you can see my father, Gope B. Melwani’s, intricate, extensive and beautifully detailed family tree. His leaf is coloured green so you can find him. Traditionally, it is only the boys’ names in the family that are added to Sindhi family trees. My father did not have a son to carry on his name to the next ‘leaf’ or generation. Instead he had two daughters, one of whom used his name and the name of his beautiful wife, in the adaptation of his story for the world to see.
