Former student of BVS and Mrs. Deeno Mistry. How can i ever forget ;)

Al-Ula,KSA.

Dear Virbaijiites,

I want to share with you the feeling of 'being lost', with the demise of our dear ex-principal, mother & teacher at our Alma mater i.e. BVS. The loss of Mrs Deena Mistri takes me back to the reminisce of the glorious past(1975-1985). The weekly tests,terminals & final exams, English & Urdu elocutions, sports season, the annual prize distribution ceremony, Sunday parade, Book exhibition, 14th August celebrations etc were a regular feature of the school activities. All the teachers in the primary & secondary sections were dedicated and used to create interest in the taught subjects. Retrospectively speaking,the most significant aspect of BVS schooling was nurturing of character-building traits amongst the students.
Mrs Mistri became our English teacher only in the 10th grade. We were initially very much afraid of her, but as the time passed, we came to realize her personal touch & affection. She'll remain in our memories forever,like other tutors, as someone has rightly said that 'we were able to see beyond only by standing on the shoulders of giants'. They all were truly the architects of the nation. I would end by quoting few verses from the Lotus Book of English Verse, which was being taught at the school:

'I have had playmates,I have had companions,
In my days of childhood, in my joyful school-days;
All, all are gone, the old familiar faces.'
How some they have died,and some they have left me,
And some are taken from me; all are departed;
All, all are gone, the old familiar faces.'
(The Old Familiar Faces-C.LAMB)

Thanks & Regards.

*MRS Deena Mistri will be fondly remembered and missed by all the students
of BVS Parsi High School.*

She had an unusual way of instilling an uncompromising, self-sustaining
moral code in all her ‘boys’ and in setting elusively high standards for
seeking knowledge from eclectic sources. Immediately after her periodic
‘killer’ English test, she would have us exchange books and self-check.

Since there was no prescribed course for these tests that were based on her
somewhat high expectation of our English skills, a C grade was a feat.
Bruised and beaten, we would be encouraged to rise again.

Having finished our prescribed metric textbook within three months, most of
our time with Mrs. Mistri was spent in open and spirited discourse.

Despite her formidable personality, she was very approachable and fond of
being challenged and debated with.

She would personally devote time to prepare us for elocutions, debates and
competitions.

Her tradition of the start-of-the-week-assembly ‘secular’ prayer is a fond
memory. True or not, a lot of us BaiVirbaijeeites sense that the aura of
those days has subliminally infected us with a quality of helpless
incorruptibility.

Studying at a Parsi school was a unique experience. One could not avoid
imbibing a sense of social justice, tolerance, and humanity and love for all
that are the characteristics of this generous and philanthropic community.

*A disciplinarian*

THERE are few people in Pakistan whose services are greater than Deena
Mistry. She dedicated her life to teaching and spreading the message of
love. She had an illustrious career as an educationist and she was regarded
by many as their guru.

She was the great granddaughter of the founder of BVS Parsi High School. She
did her BA (Hons) from Bombay University in 1945. She joined the school in
1951 as a teacher and she was the only woman lady teacher in the school.

After 21 years of dedicated service she became the principal of the school.

The government of Sindh awarded “The best school of the Millennium” to BVS
School during her reign. She was awarded the Pride of Performance award in
2002.

She retired in 2004 and was given a rousing farewell by the school
management and the alumni of the school.

"Sorrow comes in great waves...but it rolls over us, and though it may almost
smother us. it passes and we remain." - Henry James

I, as grand child of ‘Sir Hussain’ who had the honor of being a faculty member at
the esteemed ‘BVS’, join with so many others who knew Madam Mistri in offering our
deepest sympathy on her passing.

The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one has or what
possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched and the
sorrow they leave behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on her loss is any
indication, and it most certainly is, you can proudly and confidently say that her
indeed was a life well-lived. Madam had always been a humble person; never liked to
be the center of attention. In life and now in death, I’m sure she wouldn't want us
to focus on this, but instead focus on the happiness in our lives. She would want us
to appreciate each other and our future.

Ma’am, we will always miss you. But we have so many wonderful memories to hang on
to. You were a role model, and a friend. Your guidance, love and ‘the anger’ will
carry me through to the end of my days.

May the bereaved find peace and comfort in knowing that Madam’s loss is felt by all
who knew and loved her.

In Sympathy,

Son’s / Grand Children's of Sir Hussain.

*DEENA Mistri (lovingly called by many as Dinoo Aunty) was not only an
educationist par excellence but a thorough disciplinarian and a true friend
and mentor whose relationships with her students and their parents far
outlived the time we all had spent in school. *

I had the good fortune to know another side of Dinoo Aunty, i.e. her
personal side as she was very close to my mother. She was kind, warm, full
of life and vigor and, above all, possessed a very potent sense of humor.

She was one of those very few people that I have had the privilege to be
associated with, who truly had a heart of gold. She was battling this huge
scourge of cancer for very many years but was always her normal smiling
self.

I remember the time I went to see her in hospital when she had broken her
arm and was absolutely in awe when she was laughing and joking and showed no
signs of pain or discomfort.

Kudos to her for leading an institution and teaching till the last years of
her life. It can be reliably said that it was because of her hard work and
sacrifices the Virbaijeeites are placed in very high positions all over the
world.

Many like me will truly miss this wonderful lady. May her soul rest in
eternal peace and give immense strength and courage to her sons and entire
family to bear this colossal loss.

For the first time in my life I am lost for words. I cannot find befitting words to
describe a legend and not just a lady that Mrs Mistri was and shall always remain.
Her earthly body may have breathed its last, but her spirit will continue to live on
in the hearts of many like me. I still remember her great and immaculate demeanor,
her lively humor. She was indeed a joy to behold and hear. Her loss is just not the
loss of her immediate family, but many Sons like me!

Dear Colleagues,

It's quite painful to write that Mrs Deena Mistri is no more with us.She was our ex-principal,teacher & a mentor.She would always be remembered along with many others like Siddiqui Sb,Omer Sb, Mr Hussein,Mr Wyne,Mr Dean,Azizullah Sb,Qadri Sb,Qurban Sb,Mrs Shafi,,Mrs Khan,Mrs Rogay,Mrs Mulla,Mrs Daroga etc.May all rest in peace.Amen.
Mrs Mistri was considered a 'scare' in the initial part of our schooling.But in secondary section we came to realize that she wanted all of us to maintain discipline in our lives at all cost. In the 10th grade we even witnessed the motherly affection of Mrs Mistri.She took personal interest in her students.Besides teaching the English subject,she used to stress upon character-building.I fondly remember the final days of Elocution(English & Urdu). While announcing the judges' results,her voice used to be charged with admiration & pride for the students.
We are earnestly indebted to our tutors' selfless devotion & efforts, without which we would have lost our way.It is incumbent upon us now to keep ourselves & others enlightened with the torch of truth & righteousness.

Thanks. Best regards,
M.Shoaib

My heart felt condolences to the family & all who have known her. She was a very special women of very tall stature. I would regard her as a leader much more than all the Benezir,s & Mirza's. At least in her own way she was able to create an environment within our rotting society where we learned to compete & excel without prejudice.

We were taught certain principals that have helped us throughout our lives.

I always admired her for her immaculate attire the way she conducted herself & her mannerisms. I felt proud to be in her presence that a part of her belonged to me as a BVS student & I remember telling my outside friends that she was an ideal principal who had ideal principles & would not bow to any pressure from whomever.

I feel happy & sad at the same time. Happy that we all have to die & that she did not suffer. Sad because I know that Karachi, BVS will never have a principal like her again and it is a misfortune of that country where people like her are not cherished & appreciated enough.

Good bye Mrs Mistri. Rest in peace.

Mrs. Deena Mistri was a lot more than a Principal. She was a mother to her family, a true leader, a visionary, an accomplished lady, and a mother for thousands of Virbaijiites.

She led by example through her impeccable grace, her aura, her strong willpower, her gentleness, kindness, genuine affection, inspiration and determination. Her style of discipline that made us all strong young adults will always be remembered.

Words are insufficient to define our Deenu aunty. We pray for her soul to rest in eternal peace while she will continue to live in our hearts. She taught us the essence of "Towards That Best Light" which will continue to glow in our hearts forever.

We feel so fortunate to have known Deenu aunty and extend our deepest sympathy to the family. May these words comfort you on this irreplaceable loss. We will always remember her sweet smile and beautiful nature.

I wanted to offer our condolence on this sad day. Mrs. Mistri was an icon for all of us who not only gave us great education but taught us values, discipline and respect for others.

In a population of 180 million people she stands out and someone who dedicated her entire life for students like myself by working tirelessly and ensuring we turn out to be great human beings.

This country needs more people like Mrs. Mistri but I guess that's asking too much because there can never be another Mrs. Mistri with that level of commitment to education.

She will be missed by all us but one thing is for sure she will always be in our hearts and mind. God bless her soul.

And this is to Mrs. Mistri ........We love you and will always do!

Best regards,

What can one say about a person like Mrs. Mistri (in my early years) and our dear Dinoo aunty (in later years)… where does one start? I think I have known this great lady ever since I started recognizing individuals in my early years in BVS. The icon of strictness & principles, yet a caring and nurturing individual, who wanted nothing but the best of “her children”, i.e. her students. All she wanted was that every student of hers get the best education in life just so in later years that individual could stand up on their own and create a name for themselves and lead a succesful and happy life with their families. Her contribution to the field of education is untouched! A true LEGEND who will be dearly missed. Dinoo Aunty we love you and will ALWAYS cherish the few happy days that I had the previlige of sharing with you in the summer of 2010. You will never be forgotten as you have etched a place in our hearts. Love you always….. Be at peace!

I studied in BVS, & knew & respected Mrs. Mistri. As a kid I wrote a funny poem on her & it somehow came in her hands, I was very scared for she wasn't the one to “Spare the Rod”. But to my surprise she laughed & read the poem aloud in class! Such was her nature. Fe-Amanullah Dinoo Aunty.

I still remember those days… & whenever I pass from there sometimes I get tears in my eyes & I say to my own self that those lovely days have gone... never to get back!!!

I also miss all my childhood friends. I am really fortunate to be a student of Great Teachers like Mrs. Mistri, Mrs. Daroga, Ms. Mulla, Sir Aziz ullah, Sir Omer, Mr. Ramzan Shah, Mrs. Nighat Razak, Sir Qurban, Mrs. Hashim, Mrs. Farah.

My short message to all is that it is always good to keep in touch with old friends and which I always have.

Last but not least, I would like to thank Mrs. Mistri who did a lot for everyone specially shared the knowledge & gave us good suggestions & guidance.

I am really very proud to be a Virbaijeeite.

I just pray to God that the name of BVS always shines like a twinkling star and is the first priority of all parents.

They don’t make educators like her any more. Irrespective of the fact that whoever is associated or not with the BVS school; we all have our thanks due to Madam Deena Mistri for everything she has done for all of us.

Madam: There have been scores of children who under your guidance have now become leaders in their respective professional fields.

I still have the PREFECT badge with me.... It was very sad to read about Sir Qurban. He was tough from outside but his heart was very soft. May God rest his soul rest in peace.

Salaams Virbaijeeites,

I graduated from BVS in 1993. I spent 10 years in BVS and those are the years that I could never forget. I cannot forget the endless beatings by Mrs. Mistri (got them every year for 10 years at least once a month without fail), cannot forget the PT periods, could never forget my all time favorite Miss Mulla and Mansoor Sahib and Sir Qurban`s
“CHUMPIAN” and Farooq Bhai`s canteen (he still remembers me by name).

I remember climbing the new library roof after school ended, by jumping from one library window to another to retrieve those precious socks balls that those "PREFECTS" (STILL LOVE TO HATE THEM) use to throw after the recess. I was in class six then.....I did that “BUNDER KA TAMASHA” and “AMAZING STUNT” (as phrased by the all time great Sir Azizullah) when he caught me in the act. At that time I was coming down, I jumped from the roof top on to the Library terrace which I guess is some 10 to 15 meters from roof to terrace. Sir Azizullah asked me my name, my class and my section and told me to throw all the balls back on the roof (tragic isn’t it). The very next day he took me to THE PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE and once again I got a severe thrashing, I remember Sir Azizullah calling me a SHAITAN and……..

Next day after that thrashing I climbed the roof and retrieved all the balls again.

When I left BVS, I went to Mrs. Mistri`s office and she said “BETU you are one of the most daring and Shaitan student I have ever seen.”

Well all my teachers also thought the same way……..but I was a good student too and had a good athletic record as well. I won almost all the events in that year’s sports day. I represented BVS in interschool athletics and won the 100 meters dash, 200 meters dash and the long Jump and believe me I was a person of a very short height. Sir Qurban used to say:

“Aa gaya mera CHUMPION”

All these memories will be with me throughout my life. I still tremble when I see Mrs. Mistri somewhere and remember those canes that she had, but my friends I still want to say, I love and remember each and every thing about BVS, my teachers, my friends and specially Mrs. Mistri, whom I place right next to my parents.

Ma`am if you could ever read this, I will always admire you through out my life and it is my dream that my children could get a teacher, a principal, a disciplinarian like yourself, it would be my dream come true, for you made a good man out of me and of every one who knew you.

ALWAYS “ TOWARDS THAT BEST LIGHT ”

As-salam-o-alaikum,

Living in Saudi Arabia for the last 10 years and the one thing I miss the most is our beloved BVS school and its scouting. I infact thought many times to call it quits and go back to live those beautiful memories all over again by associating myself with the school in some way.

Some day I am sure I will. Those who are from 1990 batch can join us by signing up bvs1990@yahoogroups.com as we are very much active since last 5-6 years and have regular get togethers. Also those scouts which were active from 1988 to 1994 should also get in touch as we do get together when ever I go for vacation. My cell number is +966-50-3774413.

Regards, Faisal.

It was sad to hear about Sir Qurban. Who can forget his famous line "BAAX AAN" in the boxing competitions.
May god rest him in peace.

Hi to all:). This is a wonderful thing. I only got to know today. This is gr88888888888888888888. I think im back in BVS now. Though it has been 30 years that I matriculated, I spent my best years of my life in BVS from 1967 to 1977. Going through this site I got to know that Mrs. Mistri is no more the principal.I am presently based in Dubai and associated with Khaleej Times, the leading daily of Gulf. If I can be of any help pleae let me know.

Hi Virbaijeeites.

I am graduate of 1978. I miss BVS and memories of my school days a lot. Mrs Mistri no doubt has been a gem for our school. Would like reunion to be held regularly and if 1978 batch can have a get together then it will be fun though it is difficult. Afshad, Ahmed Kapadia of my batch can think of this. I am serving in Pakistan Navy in Karachi and would love to do anything for our school & Virbaijeeites. Sad Demise of Mr Qurban, Mr Azizullah and others is heartfelt. The memories of school makes me wish of return of those golden days which I cherish so much. Hats off to all those in creating and running this site. God bless u all.
