Remembering Prof. Rumy Mistry
Prof Rumy Mistry was a Senior Member of Baroda University. One of the first supporters of Parzor, his work for his country and community remains remarkable. As a long-standing Trustee of the Baroda Parsi Anjuman, he was the force behind the creation of BUZY – the Baroda Youth League. His work with the Federation Of Zoroastrian Anjumans Of India gave direction to this core group of community leaders. He constantly encouraged young people and BUZY has in its own way created a new generation of leaders in Baroda and across the country.
Sociologist, scientist, demographer, and above all a remarkable Human Being he has helped us at Parzor from its inception. He co-authored the Parzor Oral Traditions Publication with Dr. Shernaz Cama and helped with the Presentation at the NCPA during the UNESCO Celebrations of the 3000th Anniversary Of Zoroastrian Culture.
Rumy fought a brave battle till the end. He leaves behind his wife Sociologist and teacher Prof Veena Mistry and two Sons .
We grieve with them and the Baroda Anjuman and Thank God for giving us the guidance and good humor of Rumy. May his soul now find peace in Garothman Behest. Amen ??
