Hi Jyoti,
I am Kaushik Sharma from Jiaganj, currently residing at Hyderabad. I am close relative of Kamal Chand Pandey. Thanks for this nice community site of yours. A smal point here though. The concept of Shaharwalli is not neccesarily restricted to the Jains of Murshidabad. By and large to me it is a cultural identity. It is niche culture shared by few , appreciated by many, but the highlight being people with this tahzeeb prefers to identify themselves as shaharwali.
