In 1932, 500 rupees was a lot of money, the Mirza family was so rich, it was nothing. Via “Wings of Duty A Memoir” by Syed Muhammad Ahmad (nephew of MGA), a story is told how lavish and rich the 2nd Khalifa was in 1932 as he paid Ram Nath Chawla 500 rupees to bring his aeroplane to Qadian and take the 2nd Khalifa and his family for tours over Qadian and the River Beas. Ram Nath Chawla used the 500 rupees to fund his historic journey in 1934, as he flew from Karachi, India to England, solo, in a de Havilland Puss Moth (See “Wings of Duty A Memoir” by Syed Muhammad Ahmad, 2023).
Nevertheless, on Dec-30th, 1932, Ram Nath Chawla arrived in Qadian and took Mirza Sharif Ahmad, Mirza Bashir Ahmad, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud, Nasira Begum and her sister Amtul Qayoom (both were daughters of the 2nd Khalifa). Children also went up, Syed Muhammad Ahmad went up and even had the chance to watch other Ahmadi’s fly the plane, Mirza Daud Ahmad and another of the 2nd Khalifa’s daughter’s Amtul Hakeem (7 years old)(See “Wings of Duty A Memoir” by Syed Muhammad Ahmad, 2023).
15 years later (1947 and during partition), the 2nd Khalifa, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad paid 5000 rupees for a L-5 airplane, Deputy Muhammad Latif helped make the deal and even brought the plane to Qadian (See “Wings of Duty A Memoir” by Syed Muhammad Ahmad, 2023).
