Diwan Wadhumal Odharam:

He was reputed to be the lion of the Bar. He was loved and admired by his colleagues and was respected and feared by Bench on account of his sturdy and in-dependent views. As he was a lawyer by profession, he was politician by choice. He was the best electioneer whom Karachi had ever seen. He fought many a valiant battles against odds and always came off with flying colours. The key of his success was his love for public and private freedom. He was a member of Bombay Legislative Assembly after the reforms of 1919, Vice-President Karachi Municipality and a Trustee of Port of Karachi. A powerful speaker, he always shone when in opposition. The important market and a busy road leading to the Courts are named after him because of his many and useful services to the city of Karachi. He passed away from this world to his heavenly home in 1921, leaving a great and honourable name behind which his worthy son Mr. Tikamdas sustains upto this day. Late Diwan Wadhumal even today is remembered in every walk of life with affection and admiration. Late Diwan Wadhumal has not only left a name as a leading Lawyer of Sind which is still being maintained by the famous firm which bears his name, namely Wadhumal & Co., but a worthy Citizen of Sind by being associated with many societies, clubs and Associations of Sind. There is nothing worthy in Sind which does not bear the stamp of his personality. From the Karachi Municipality to the Karachi Club, from Karachi Port Trust to Karachi Gymkhana his towering personality has left his marks behind.
