140-year-old School From Nizam Era Struggling for Survival

It’s a school that today boasts of many well-settled alumni and has been a well-recognized institution for decades. The Mufeed-ul-Anam Boys High School at Etebar Chowk is one of the few institutions that has withstood testing times.


However, today, the school is in need of aid and support from the civic authorities of Hyderabad. One of the past alumni rues that each day the students have to pass huge garbage bins to enter the school, which is really pathetic.


It is said that over the years, the school had given admissions to students irrespective of caste and creed, and many students of the past reminisce that that was how they learnt about other cultures and customs. It also helped them mingle with children of other religions and respect them.


Most of the alumni who are disturbed by the current plight of the school vouch that the teachers were simply awesome and dedicated, which helped the school produce some exemplary citizens. However, since it is run by funds from the state government, the school is facing difficulty in maintaining itself, more so during post-COVID times.


The school is one-of-its-kind as it has classes in four mediums – Hindi, English, Telugu, and Urdu. The school headmistress Rama Devi recollects how there was a huge demand for admissions and how entrance tests were held for three days to pick students.


The institution has sought the help of its alumni, many of whom are settled abroad, to come forward to help revive the school and its past glory.
