MRS. Mohammadi Begam Abbas DaruwalaPrincipal of Crescent Highschool
Born and brought up in Hyderabad in a well-educated and reputed family, Mrs. M. A. Daruwala is an M.A. B.Ed. She envisioned a society where students could avail of good education irrespective of caste, creed, class and gender. She translated this vision into reality by establishing the Crescent High School in 1975 in Gultekdi, Pune. Her nurturing and hard work saw it grow from a modest 14 students to a vibrating and pulsating Institution of 3500 students today. This was possible because of the inspiration she gained from her father late. Mr. Munshi Abdul Rehman, Director, Animal Husbandry, Maharashtra and with the support and encouragement of her late. husband Mr. Abbas Daruwala.
