Make good on your words, Dhunjibhoy

Now that Khushroo Dhunjibhoy holds the reins of the Royal Western India Turf Club (RWITC), having taken over from Vivek Jain in the recent hi-voltage election, here is a quick look at what Dhunjibhoy has on his plate, RWITC style. –


R: Renewal. He has to get the 100-year lease of Mahalaxmi that has expired, renewed.
W: Wordsworth. He has to prove that all his pre-election words and promises carry weight and act on them.
I: Infrastructure. He claimed he was going to upgrade the infrastructure of the club. Yet, with the lease pending, one cannot do much, so it all depends on the first R — Renewal.
T: Tax. Betting tax, to be precise. Dhunjibhoy said he is going to prevail upon authorities to reduce it. Let us wait and watch.
C: Clean up racing. Murky stories and sabotage allegations were key to his campaign. He said he would bring in professional stewards for racing. The clock has started ticking, Mr Dhunjibhoy. Your time begins now. – See more at:
