A group photo of the older generation

This is a photograph of some Jatars, and also others who had a female Jatar ancestor. This photograph was taken on the seventy-fifth birthday celebrations. These men are more or less the same age although some are cousins, and others children of cousins. You can check out if you see any resemblance between them!

From LtoR: Sudhir jatar, Jayant Jatar, Bal Borgaonkar, Ashok Bhajekar, Raghunath Jatar and Chandu Jatar.

All of the women in this photograph are the spouses, not of Jatar ancestry.

The people standing from left to right are Chandu Jatar, Maj Gen. SCN (Sudhir) Jatar, Bal Borgaokar, Ashok Bhajekar, Brig. Raghunath Jatar and Jayant Jatar.

The women sitting are Sarla Jatar (née Purandare), wife of Sudhir Jatar, Manda Borgaokar (née Purandare), wife of Bal Borgaokar, Suneela Bhajekar (née Ganorkar) and Nilakshi Jatar (née Bal), wife of Raghunath Jatar.

1) Chandu Jatar is the son of  Babukaka who was the son of Bapurao Jatar, who was the eldest son of Shriram Jatar. Chandu is the same age as Sudhir, because of the age difference between the two brothers – Bapurao and Bhausaheb.
2) Maj. Gen. SCN Jatar  is the son of Lt. Col. Sir Nilkanth Shriram Jatar, who was the younger brother of Bapurao.
3) Bal Borgaokar’s mother was a Jatar and her name was Kumudini Jatar, and she was the daughter of Balasaheb (brother to Bapurao and Bhausaheb), son of Shriram Jatar. Kumudini’s husband was Shankarao Borgaokar.
4) Ashok Bhajekar is the son of Indirabai Bhajekar, who was the eldest child of Lt. Col. Sir Nilkanth Shriram Jatar
5) Brig. Raghunath Jatar is the son of Abbasaheb, who was also known as Vishnu Shriram Jatar, another one of Shriram’s sons, and brother to Bapurao, and Bhausaheb.
6) Jayant (Dattatrya) Jatar, is the son of Appasaheb, who was the son of Bapurao. Due to the fact that Bapurao was many years older than Bhausaheb, Jayant is the same age as Sudhir. He is married to Sheela Pandit, but she is not in the photograph.
