Patel was married when he was approximately 17 years of age to Jhaverba, a girl from the village of Gana. Unfortunately very little is known about Jhaverba and their lives together. They had a daughter, Mani in 1904 and a son, Dahya, in 1905. Jhaverba died in 1909 at the young age of 29 when their children were only 5 and 3.

When many years later, Maniben, Patel's daughter was asked about her mother, she simply said 'I have no idea'. Her father never spoke about her mother.

This Photograph shows Sardar Patel (extreme right) along with his mother Ladba and his brothers. There is however not a single picture of Jhaverba, Patel's wife.
