Meher Baba's eldest brother and first born.
Because his mother Shireen was only 15 when she gave birth to him, she was too young to raise the child, guardian parents came to her assistance.
He later married Dowla's brother - Dinshaw's daughter - Khorshed, who was known as "Big ( Moti ) Khorshed".
Jamshed was visiting his guardian parents when he died suddenly. His sister Mani, then aged 4 was also visiting. She accompanied his body back to Poona in a taxi, resting his head on her lap.
Baba's brother JAMSHED IRANI died February 26 or 27, 1926 (LM3 p779-785). Baba later commented about his death:
21 July 1956, New York, Aw 4:2 p26
'My brother Jamshed, when we were boys, used to quarrel and fight with me. As he grew older, Jamshed began to love me. Later on, in Meherabad, he couldn't sleep because he thought all the time about me. When he went to Poona, all of a sudden he had a splitting headache, and the heart felt heavy. And just before an attack of apoplexy, he felt very blissful. He shouted my name, and then fell into a coma. And during those three hours, his lips were moving with the rhythm, "Baba, Baba, Baba." Mani was there. Then he died. He came to me.'
