School Background 

Mussarat Piracha's Girls High School was a prominent and well-maintained private institute run by Mrs. Mussarat Jaffery nee Piracha. The school was established back in 1967 in the area of Pakki Thatti, Multan Road Lahore with the title name of Mussarat Middle Girls School for 4 consecutive years. In 1971, the school was nationalized by Bhutto's government. Under government administration, the school abandoned its goals and the standard of education became worse and worst. In this situation, most parents removed their children from the school. (click right picture to enlarge) Note: More memorable pictures will be added soon, Insha Allah.

In 1977, the parents who already had experienced the standard and quality of education rendered by Miss Mussarat Piracha compelled her to re-established a school like before. So after a pause of six years, she re-formulated its academic services with new style and refreshed stamina in a rented building located at main boulevard, (Satluj Block), Allama Iqbal Town, Lahore. Its name was then decided Mussarat Piracha's Home. Later on when the school was officially recognized by the Education Department its name was Mussarat Piracha Girls High School. The school earned a great fame and repute in the locality for its quality education. It was a remarkable turning point in the school history when after a great struggle, Mussarat Piracha was allotted school plot by LDA at 905-Nizam Block, Allama Iqbal Town, Lahore. The building layout was designed by Aamir Architects and bricks' quality was approved by Sh. Fazal Elahi Piracha; father of Mussarat Piracha. On November 7, 1986 digging started and  foundation stone laid by Khadim Hussain Siddiqui, President ABL who very kindly approved the primary loan for school construction. M/S Ishaq Contractors started construction with great spirit while electric, sanitary and steel works were shared by Ayyaz Electric Contractors,  Amanat Ali Sanitary Works and Banyamin Steel Works respectively. Within 1 1/2 years the ground and first floors were almost ready and first batch of classes was started on April 9, 1988. A dream came true. View school building as seen on Google Earth.

How do I joined Mussarat Piracha's Home? 

On December 29, 1981, a seminar was organized at Hotel Flatti's, Lahore under the banner of Anjuman-e-Bahali-e-Mazooran, Lahore chaired by Mr. Jamshaid Pirzada and presided over by Mr. Zakir Hussain Qureshi Provincial Minister for Social Welfare and Religious Affairs, Punjab. This seminar was conducted in relevance to 1981-International Year for the Disabled Persons embraced by the United Nations and well-echoed globally including Pakistan. I was invited to read a paper Kiya Mazoori Aik Roag Hai? in the said seminar; broadcasted same evening on Radio Pakistan Lahore Channel-2.

After the seminar, a lady in wheelchair asked me, "Where I'm working?" I answered, "Nothing, I remained free at home". She said, "A person with such brilliant vision and feelings, must not stay idle at home". She offered me to work with her at her girls high school, which I accepted with high gratitude. As a token of our first meeting, I presented her my poetry book Numa-e-Gham very humbly and she was delighted to see it. The day after tomorrow on December 31, 1981, I attended another seminar in Town Hall, Lahore conducted by Punjab Social Welfare Department. Here the lady (Mussarat Piracha) announced that she has appointed me as her PRO (Public Relation Officer).

It was a great turning point in my life and I was extremely very passionate to join the office. With great fervor and dedicated determination, I joined my office on January 4, 1982 located at Satluj Block, Allama Iqbal Town, Lahore. Next day; on January 5, 1982, the Principal, very kindly presented me a brand new wheelchair for domestic use. It significantly facilitate my home life as it provided me massive liberty to move myself around home.

On Saturday, 9th January 1982, the school held a function at Educational Hall, Lahore Museum on the occasion of Eid Milad-un-Nabi. This was my first appearance (debut) on the platform of Mussarat Piracha's Home. In this function, expressing my immense confidence on stage, I presented an Islamic Quiz Show. It was also my very first performance on a stage which was highly successful and well-applaud by the audience.

General Scenarios and Downfall

My literary thirst well quenched at school platform, where I done a great creative work and wrote speeches, compositions, dramas, scripts, parodies, poems and also manage quizzes on various national and religious occasions. I also unveiled, polished and proved my designing capabilities and other talents by giving extra time even after school hours. This sincere dedication effected my overall health and some pressure sores developed due to restless long sittings. I apparently always compromised with my health problems but never give-up my work because I love working. 

It was a miserable afternoon of July 25, 1990, school was closed for summer vacation and I was called upon by Mussarat Piracha - The Principal to complete pending office works. She was always feel comfortable while working with me. We worked for hours and completed a lot of work. Winding up for the day we say Allah Hafiz. She always go back home by her Suzuki van but due to not availability of van that day, she decided to go home on her wheelchair. Within five minutes of her departure she was shot from back on the way back to home with her maid. She was taken to Shaikh Zayed Hospital where I met her lying on stretcher and was taken to Lahore General Hospital for further investigations and treatment.

After bullet injury of Mussarat Piracha, the school actually started its downfall. She struggled not only for life but for school as well. She shifted her residence in the school premises for better supervision. When she feel discomfort and uncertain; she moved her bed in the office and try to control the school more minutely. Her efforts didn't bring blooms because huge medical expenses, bank and personal loans, school maintenance, staff salaries and finally visit to England for medical treatment were all those frontiers she couldn't fight alone while lying in bed.

My Future Career

While I got computer training well beside my service in late afternoons, my medical problem get worse and worst due to restless long sittings causing pressure sores. At last, in the capacity of Manager, I verbally resigned on medical grounds heavy-heartily after a service of 18+ years without claiming any retirement benefits. Thus my multi-natured activities converted to my newly established home-based Pentium Graphics Center & Training Institute.

Conclusion   

After leaving school, I was wholeheartedly busy in nourishing my new career i.e my Computer Training Institute and there was no direct and/or indirect connection between me and Mussarat Baji.

Obituary   

One day, I was informed by someone that Mussarat Baji had been passed away at the age of 65 on Monday 8th December 2008 (the day of Eid ul Azha 1429). إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ (Inna Lillah Wa Inna Elahe Rajeoon). With her demise, the life chapter of legendary Mussarat Piracha (Ajeeb Larki) and her academic mission under the banner of Mussarat Piracha's Girls High School closed forever. Her contributions in the field of "education" are highly commendable and will last forever.  And as a devoted educationist she will be remembered for decads.

May Allah be pleased with her and rest her soul in jannah. Ameen Ya Rubbul Lilalamin.
