The news that Sir Qurban has passed away brought tears in my eyes. In a flash of time all my mind recalled all the memories of those assemblies. The way Sir Qurban used to teach us how to march, his voice and the cane he always carried in his hand. Indeed, his services to our beloved school are unforgetable. With a deeply grieved heart I pray for him that may Allah bless his soul.

Hello to All Virbaijeeites:
I am a 1962 graduate of our school. Going thru your website, bought old memories back; what a good time we had in those days. Sadly, those days will never come back!

The Administrator Mr. Afshad Mistri,
I would appreciate if register me on your website. I graduated from BVS in the year 1988. I went to the classes 6C, 7C,8C, 9th medical and 10th medical.
It would mean everything to me to have my name registered and to have the opportunity of getting back in touch with my peers and if possible reliving one of the best and most memorbale time periods of my life.

22 years have passed since we graduated from BVS and still when I pass from Abdullah Haroon road, the memories of my first day at BVS always flash back in my mind. I still remember the cool and gentle Mrs. Wania who was the class teacher of 1A in 1974 when I got admission in BVS.
All the best to all of you.

The Virbaijeeite Family,
I am a graduate of Class of 1990. Sixteen years have passed and still, whenever the thought of BVS crosses my mind, I feel as if I am missing something very close to my heart; I suddenly feel like going back to the school and look for whatever I have left behind. I am sure many of you must be sharing this wonderful feeling.
Over these years, many-a-times, whenever I have passed through the Victoria Road, on foot or in a car, my head turns towards the BVS as if ‘saluting’ it; just as when all our heads would turn to salute Mrs. Mistri the great, during the weekly March Past.
After so many years, I was trying to find out about our beloved school on the internet, when the beautiful image of the school building showed-up with this site. It’s an apt representation of our great school. A great job done by the talented virbaijeeites!
As I browsed through the site, my eyes filled with tears; sometimes with joy and then with sadness.
I would like to convey my belated condolences to Mrs. Mistri on the sad demise of her beloved husband Mr. Minoo Mistri. I would also like to condole with families of Sir Azizullah (his son, Sir Khalid, and Mrs. Tayyaba Khalid) and that of Sir Sultan.
And those of you who know Sir Azizullah – you all must be remembering his threats to make “fruit buns” out of our hands by smashing them with the duster. I remember him saying back in 1990, “I am seventy-five years young, and you are fifteen years old!” He was absolutely right - he indeed had a young heart, always cheerful and always a source of inspiration to us.
Lets all of us be at the school on its 150th birthday!
May God bless us all!

Well! What splendid work this has been by having created such a stupenduous web-site. To be very frank; although I have not done my schooling from BVS but its really worth & highly commendable to read the comments of all those associated with this prestigious school. The only desire which I now have in this world is to get my son admitted in Class I for the session of 2007 (next year). Lets see how things work out for him as right now he is in a Montessori school in Parsi Colony (Karachi). I am really impressed with the discipline & principles set at an early age for those studying at BVS thus enabling the future generation of to face the real world with enough courage, strength & vigour. With best wishes to all of you.

I am glad to see so many messeges. Also I know most of us are living a very comfortable life, becuase we are blessed by God & had the opportunity to attend BVS which gave us strong foundation in life.
This is a very good idea to keep in touch with each other & keep the bvs virbaijeeites alive for ever. As Farhad M. said "TOWARDS THAT BEST LIGHT" keep in touch Fayyaz Abdul Aziz 1985.

First of all I would like to congratulate the team for taking the initiative to create a website like this.
I am a graduate of 1990 and have missed BVS all these years. Visiting the websites, looking at the pictures was a great experience.
I hope to meet other graduates from my time and communicate with them.
Again I wish you all the best. I hope this website will go experience more upgrades and enhancements.
Thank You and God Bless You all.

It seems we have all these well wishers of our dear school. In each an every message, I read not only fond memories, but a hidden desire to give back something for what the school gave to us. So lets put our heads together and come up with ways to give something back to this institution that put us where we are today.
Most of us are abroad & doing well. We can help with Ideas, Techinical support, Physical support and even some financial support. We can adopt a programm that benifits the next generation, and have that completely sponsered by the old Virbaijeeites. Maybe even a scholarship program for the deserving, talented, but poor. SO LETS PUT OUR THINKING CAPS ON AND GO FOR IT. The personal gratification well get for doing something for a school that gave us so much will be priceless.
TOWARDS THAT BEST LIGHT - FARHAD MISTRI.

Hi, Since I have signed up on this site, whenever I log on to internet, the first thing I do is, go to bvsvirbaijeeites.com.
I am working for an engineering firm. Last month I recieved a few quotations, and one of them was signed by Luvai Zumkawala. His mobile number was also there. I was not sure if he is the same Luvai bhai who was the favourite troop leader of BVS scouts, so I sent him an SMS asking him about it and in reply he wrote the famous slogan of BVS Scouts.
I was so glad to talk to him after more than 20 years. Surprising Na?

I belong to 1984 group. All I can say is "BRAVO". Guys you have done a superb job. But you missed out a very important aspect, I do not see anything about the BVS Scouts on the main page. I hope some of my classmates (specially Athar Sattar and Azhar Hashmat) still remember the slogan "CHIKA LIKA CHIKA LIKA CHOW SHOW CHOW" ;). I met Mrs. Mulla a couple of months before her death and I felt honoured to help her out of her car. I also heard about Mr. Mansoor's demise. May God bless them all.

I just found out about the existence of this website. How wonderful.
I am a graduate of the class of 1961. Matter of fact, I was the Best Matriculate of 1961 and the Deputy Head Prefect (Lancelot Graham House).
Would love to get in touch with any of my classmates. I remember so well the best teachers any student could have hoped for: Mr. Rustomjee, the principal; Mr. Minwala and Mrs Mistri, the English teachers who helped lay the strong foundation of the language that has taken me far, Mr. Hussein and Mr Azizullah, Mrs Sidhwa, Miss Mulla and all the other fine teachers. The education given to me by BVS from 1951-1961 held me in excellent stead for the past 44 years. Through my life, there has never been a pursuit that has rewarded me more than what I was asked to put in (and did) by this very glorious school. BVS, and all that this institution represented, has been perhaps the most signifcant factor contribting to whatever worldly success I have had in my adult life.
May BVS fare well for decades to come.

Truly impressed with the site. More impressed is the ecstasy of knowing that our wonderful school has its own web site, where we all can surf, recall & recollect fond memories.
It is absolutely true, what one of the Virbaijeeites have written in your guest book "ENJOY YOUR SCHOOL LIFE AS IT WILL NEVER COME BACK"
I studied at BVS Parsi High School from Montessori upto my matriculation, in the year 1974. I owe my utmost respect & profound gratitude to each & every teacher who taught my fellow students & myself. Words are not enough to thank each of the teachers, for their selfless devotion & life long dedication (Here I must mention the name of Late MEHERWANJEE IRANI MASTER.) Irani Master gave his entire life tutoring students at BVS Parsi High School. Even my late father said, he was tutored by Irani Master. I do not think BVS School will ever see his like again.
I am proud to be a graduate of this remarkable educational institution. Though this may sound to be erratic, but I would still like to mention it, if the mythology of reincarnation is true, then I would like to be back in Karachi to study at the BVS.
Thank you & God Bless You All.

In this world full of harted, I considered myself and the fellow virbaijeeites fortunate to have the message of tolerance, respect and healthy competition from none other than yourself. God bless you and keep you in good health. You will always be the most powerful influence on my life along with my parents.

"Pehlay ko Pehlay say, Dosray ko Dosray say, Pehlay aur Dosray ko into kar kay Dugna". I was just telling my wife this 2 days ago as she asked me about my knowledge in Algebra. May AzizUllah Sahib rest in peace. On the last day in 1984 as I asked him for his autograph (a BVS tradition) he made his trademark victory podium, put my name on #1 and made the #1 step unusually high. I will be forever grateful to him for helping me reach that position.
